    What does Russia’s war in Ukraine mean for Iraq? / Samuel Ramani

    Since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 23, Iraq has refrained from taking a firm position on the war.

General Assembly (UNGA) vote that condemned Russian aggression toward Ukraine, and merely expressed “regret” about the “deterioration of the situation and the escalating tensions between the Russian Federation and Ukraine.” Iraq justified its abstention by highlighting the risk of terrorists capitalizing on polarizations within the international community and noting its historical background, which included “sufferings resulting from the continuing wars against our people.”
