Russia Ukraine News Highlights | Finland takes 'historic' decision to supply arms to Ukraine: AFP

Russia Ukraine News Highlights | President Vladimir Putin put Russia's nuclear deterrent on high alert on Sunday in the face of a barrage of Western reprisals for his war on Ukraine, which said it had repelled Russian ground forces attacking its biggest cities.

Russia Ukraine War Highlights | The U.N. Security Council has voted for the 193-member General Assembly to hold an emergency session on Russia's invasion of Ukraine on Monday.

The vote on Sunday to authorise an emergency meeting was 11 in favour, Russia opposed, and China, India and the United Arab Emirates abstaining.

That was the exact same vote on a resolution Friday demanding that Moscow immediately stop its attack on Ukraine and withdraw all troops.

But

in that case, Russia used its veto and the resolution was defeated. The vote on Sunday to authorise an emergency meeting was 11 in favour, Russia opposed, and China, India and the United Arab Emirates abstaining.

Ukrainian U.N. Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya asked for the General Assembly meeting to be held under the so-called "Uniting for Peace" resolution, initiated by the United States and adopted in November 1950 to circumvent vetoes by the Soviet Union during the Korean War.

That resolution gives the General Assembly the power to call emergency meetings when the Security Council is unable to act because of the lack of unanimity among its five veto-wielding permanent members -- the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France.

    Russia Ukraine conflict LIVE Updates | Italy agrees military aid for Ukraine: AFP

    Italy's government on Monday agreed to provide military equipment and materials to Ukraine following Russia's invasion, although it did not immediately say how much.

    Cabinet ministers approved a decree providing for "the transfer of military means, material and equipment to the governmental authorities of Ukraine", a spokesman for Prime Minister Mario Draghi's office said.

    The United States, Canada and more than a dozen European countries have so far responded to Ukrainian appeals for military equipment.

    The announcement is separate from Sunday's news that Italy would immediately transfer 110 million euros ($120 million) for the Ukrainian government.

    But it was not immediately clear if the military support was part of a wider package unveiled by Brussels Sunday, in which the European Union agreed to unblock 450 million euros for member states to buy arms for Ukraine.

There cannot - and must not - be," Peter Peters, a candidate for the German FA presidency, told SID. "It is about war. You have to take a clear stance on that."
