Live: Ukraine seeks tough Russia sanctions; US offers India oil import help

Live news updates: The UN General Assembly voted on Thursday to suspend Russia from the world organisation’s leading human rights body over allegations of horrific rights violations by Russian soldiers in Ukraine, which the United States and Ukraine have called tantamount to war crimes.

Pakistan’s Supreme Court today struck down National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s controversial move to dismiss a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, in a major blow to the cricketer-turned politician who is now likely to face a no-trust vote in Parliament after the ruling.

In a unanimous verdict, the five-member bench also declared dissolution of the parliament as unconstitutional. The court ordered the speaker to call the session of the assembly on April 9 at 10am to organize the no-confidence vote.

Ukraine’s foreign minister pleaded for more weapons at a NATO meeting in Brussels, and called out Germany for being too slow to help. The United Nations General Assembly is set to vote Thursday on whether to suspend Russia from the Human Rights Council, as U.S. President Joe Biden accused the Kremlin’s forces of committing “major war crimes” in Ukraine.

The US announced new sanctions that target two of Russia’s biggest banks and President Vladimir Putin’s adult daughters after saying Moscow’s forces carried out atrocities in towns near Kyiv that included the murder of civilians. Russia has repeatedly denied the allegations.
