The Economic Financial Committee (also referred to as ECOFIN or the UN Second Committee) is one of the six principal committees of the United Nations General Assembly. ECOFIN and its delegates are tasked with tackling the most pressing issues in areas such as economics, global finance, operational development, financing, and the eradication of poverty. In pursuit of this goal, ECOFIN works heavily in solving problems such as economic inequality, agricultural development, sustainable development, and ensuring citizens around the world have the necessary institutions to thrive economically and financially. In the larger context of the United Nations, the General Assembly serves a critical purpose at large as the primary deliberative, representative, and legislative body of the UN. The General Assembly is also particularly important as it is the only UN organ which grants each of its member countries equal representation, drawing its power from Chapter IV of the United Nations Charter. All 193 member states of the United Nations are represented in ECOFIN. Similar to the other principal committees in the UN General Assembly, ECOFIN can craft policies and resolutions to publish out to member states but has no legally mandated enforcement mechanisms. As such, delegates in ECOFIN must pay careful attention to the manner in which they engage in collaboration, as the success of solutions and resolutions at large is contingent upon the support of other member states.

JCC: Operation barbarossa
The Operation Barbarossa, launched by Nazi Germany on June 22, 1941, marked a pivotal moment in World War II as it entailed the massive invasion of the Soviet Union. Named after Emperor Frederick Barbarossa of the Holy Roman Empire, the operation aimed to crush the Soviet regime, gain control over vast territories, and eliminate the perceived threat of communism. Characterized by swift initial advances, the German forces captured numerous Soviet territories and encircled substantial Red Army units. However, the campaign's ambitious objectives, harsh weather conditions, and determined Soviet resistance led to the gradual stalling of the German advance, ultimately resulting in a critical turning point in the war as the Wehrmacht faced increasing challenges on the Eastern Front.
