Chairman of the Committee of the Federation Council of Russia on International Affairs Konstantin Kosachev considers the voting in the UN for the draft resolution on the Crimea as "a reflection of the current Russophobic campaigns of the West", according to his statement on Facebook.
Kosachev notes that in this way the West allegedly "manifests the desire not to help the inhabitants of the Crimea, but to get revenge on them and Russia."
Furthermore, the Russian politician suggests the United Nations to consider "the actions of the West and Kyiv against the peninsula."
“Isn't it time to make the actions of Ukraine and the West against the Crimea the subject of a separate dossier for the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly? That's where a lot of real facts, not virtual facts are guaranteed," Kosachev wrote.
Earlier, November 14 at a meeting of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly an updated draft resolution on human rights in the annexed Crimea was adopted. As a result of voting, 71 countries supported the adoption of the document, 25 were against and 77 abstained.
QHA reported that the Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov noted that the decision of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly to tighten the resolution on human rights in the annexed Crimea was another slap in the face of Russia, as the contents of the document became more stringent than the previous version.
