The UN resolution on violations of human rights in Crimea forbids Russia to recruit army servicemen who come from and reside on the occupied Crimea. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin stressed this while making a speech at the Parliament on Friday.
‘The resolution insists that the occupant country must be banned from recruiting servicemen for its Armed Forces in the occupied territory. There’s another call to Russia in this document – to provide the free access for international human rights organizations across the territory of Crimea. And there’s also an appeal for UN Office High Representative for Human Rights to prepare the report on Crimea,’ Klimkin said.
As 112 International reported, UN voted for draft resolution on human rights violations in the occupied Crimea. The document underlines the need to release Ukrainian citizens, illegally detained by Russia, and to overturn a judgment on banning the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars People.
The draft resolution also calls the Russian Federation to provide access for the human rights organizations to the peninsula.
