UN: Arms transfer to Russia and Ukraine must comply with international law

The United Nations has argued that the flow of international arms to Ukraine and Russia must be done according to international law.

"Any transfer of arms and ammunition must take place in accordance with the applicable international legal framework, including, of course, the relevant Security Council resolutions," said Izumi Nakamitsu, High Representative for Disarmament Affairs.

According to her, there are reports of countries transferring or planning to transfer weapons such as drones, ballistic missiles and ammunition to the Russian armed forces, and that these weapons have been used in Ukraine.

He reiterated that any transfer of arms and ammunition must take place in accordance with the applicable international legal framework, including, of course, the relevant Security Council resolutions.

Nakamitsu also warned against the use of cluster munitions and landmines, saying the dangers of unexploded ordnance could linger for years.

"These deadly devices can contaminate communities for decades to come," she said.
