President Petro Poroshenko welcomed the recent decision of the Third Committee of UN General Assembly, as the authority approved the updated draft resolution on human rights in Crimea. The leader of the Ukrainian state posted this on his Facebook page.
‘I welcome the decision of the Third Committee of UN General Assembly to approve the reinforced UN GA resolution on the status of human rights in Crimea! We’re grateful to the co-authors of this decision and all our allies for the powerful signal to Russian occupant authorities, which states international unity and solidarity in de-occupation of Crimea,’ reads the message.
Poroshenko also expressed confidence that the UN General Assemby will also support the document during their upcoming session in December; ‘I’m sure that the efforts to restore Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity will be successful,’ he concluded.
Previously, the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly supported the draft resolution on human rights in the Russian-occupied Crimea. Ukraine’s permanent office in the UN reported this on Tuesday evening.
The bill claims rude violations of human rights on the Russian-annexed peninsula.
71 countries voted for the updated document, with Ukraine’s amendments submitted to it. Another 77 states abstained, while North Korea, Belarus, Venezuela and several more countries voted against the bill.
