In New York, additional security measures were taken due to the UN General Assembly

Only those media outlets that constantly work at the headquarters of the world organization and have their bureau in it can cover the events of the General Assembly.

Police on Monday took under heavy security the streets adjacent to the UN headquarters in New York before the start of the high-level week of the 76th session of the General Assembly.

The movement of pedestrians and vehicles stops already on Second Avenue – only members of delegations, employees of the headquarters, and journalists with the appropriate accreditation are allowed to go further. Unfortunately, temporary accreditation was not issued this year due to the pandemic – only those media outlets that not only constantly work at the headquarters of the world organization but also have their bureau in it can cover the events of the General Assembly.

The streets leading from Second Avenue to First Avenue, where the headquarters is located, are blocked by barriers of police cars, water trucks, and concrete blocks. The situation is still calm – the protesters who “besieged” the headquarters in recent days are not visible.

Next to the police barriers, stands are installed, offering all participants of the high-level week to get vaccinated for free or take a coronavirus test.
