Resolutions on the Crimea of the UN General Assembly will become increasingly tough, according to Ukraine's permanent representative to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko.

“The main effect of resolutions is a powerful lever of pressure on the aggressor country. So Russia should not tell how beautiful it is in the Crimea and that everything is white and fluffy, while for some reason they persistently do not let the UN monitoring mission go there. If everything is so good there, it would be possible to start long ago. Therefore, we will continue to adopt these resolutions, and every year they will become more rigid. And we will do this until the problem is resolved," he said.

According to him, the next resolution on the Crimea will be considered at the end of this year.

“As in the previous two years, it will be somewhere in November-December. First, the Third Committee considers the resolution, then it goes to the plenum of the General Assembly," he said.

Reference: on December 19, the UN General Assembly supported the resolution on the state of human rights in the occupied Crimea. 70 countries voted for the adoption of the resolution, 26 were against, 76 countries abstained.
