United Nations Security Council Resolution 85, adopted on July 31, 1950, was the United Nations Security Council resolution which authorised the United Nations Command under General Douglas MacArthur to support the Korean civilian population, and requested that specialized agencies, appropriate subsidiary bodies of the UN and appropriate non-governmental organizations support the UN Command in doing so. It was adopted at the 479th meeting after United Nations Security Council Resolution 84 was passed creating the unified command under General MacArthur.
The resolution was adopted with nine votes; the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia abstained. The Soviet Union was not present when voting took place. With their non-presence the Soviet Union protested against the non-recognition of the new regime of the People's Republic of China.
