UNITED NATIONS, May 6 (CGTN) - The United Nations health agency members are considering a resolution against Russia next week after its military actions in Ukraine, including the possible closure of a major regional office in Moscow, a document obtained by Reuters has showed.

The resolution, to be considered on Tuesday next week, stopped short of harsher sanctions such as suspending Russia from the UN global health agency's board as well as a temporary freeze of its voting rights, three diplomatic and political sources said.

The draft, prepared largely by EU diplomats and submitted to the WHO's regional office for Europe this week, follows a request by Ukraine, signed by at least 38 other members including Turkey, France and Germany.

The move is seen as a political step that would further Western efforts to isolate Moscow, rather than having any significant health consequences for Russia or global health policy, which diplomats said they were at pains to avoid.
