(AP) — The U.N. General Assembly has passed a nonbinding resolution that calls for Russia to end hostilities and withdraw from its neighbor on the eve of the first anniversary of Moscow’s invasion.

Diplomats from Ukraine’s allies sought to win over more nations that have been ambivalent toward the war, including China. Foreign ministers from more than a dozen European nations and Japan during two days of debate called for support for the resolution that upholds Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

The war, which began on Feb. 24, 2022, has killed tens of thousands on both sides and has reduced entire cities to ruins.
