Ukraine will submit the resolution “Regulations on human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol” for consideration in the Third Committee of the United Nations.
Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klimpush-Tsintsadze reported on the matter.
"We call on the international community to consistently react to cynical violations of human rights in the Crimea and to increase political and diplomatic pressure on the Kremlin in order to make the aggressor’s state respect the provisions of international law," she said during the event dedicated to the human rights situation in the Crimea, at the UN office in New York.
She noted that the vote on resolution’s adoption will be held by the end of November 2017.
“I want to reaffirm Ukraine's position one more time today: we do not sell territory, as well as our citizens, for money, oil or gas. Therefore, de-occupation of the Crimea, as well as other temporarily occupied territories, is our absolute priority," Klimpush-Tsintsadze added.
During the meeting dedicated to the situation with the human rights in the Crimea, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko noted that the International Court ordered the Russian Federation to stop oppressing the rights of the Crimean Tatar people in the occupied peninsula, and to ensure the availability of education in the Ukrainian language.
Yelchenko also called upon the United Nations to respond to Russia's failure to implement the decisions of the International Court of Justice on the situation with the human rights in the Crimea.
Earlier, the representatives of the Ukrainian authorities called upon the Council of Europe to protect the human rights in the Crimea.
Reference: a large number of single protests opposing illegal actions of Russian authorities against the Crimean Tatars took place on October, 14th. More than 34 people were detained. Ukraine called upon the Council of Europe to take action on numerous violations of human rights in the occupied Crimea.
