US to seek Russia's suspension from UNHRC

The United States will seek Russia's suspension from the United Nations Human Rights Council, US ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said on Monday. She added the request will be made in coordination with Ukraine, the European Union and other allies as a response to alleged war crimes committed by Russian forces in Ukraine.

"Russia’s participation on the Human Rights Council is a farce. And it is wrong, which is why we believe it is time the UN General Assembly vote to remove them," Thomas-Greenfield said during a visit to Romania. "The images out of Bucha and devastation across Ukraine require us to now match our words with action."
