The Ukrainian Diaspora should support the UN Security Council’s resolution about condemning the human rights breaches in the Russian-occupied Crimea.  

Iryna Gerashchenko, the First Vice Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, said this after her meeting with Yevhen Choliy, the President of the Ukrainian World Congress, and Serhiy Kosyanchuk, the Director of the Congress’s Office in Ukraine.

Gerashchenko insisted that governments of the countries with large Ukrainian Diaspora should support the respective resolution, which is to be passed by the UN Security Council on November 15.  

She also added that Ukraine expects the Diaspora’s support of the government’s European aspirations – such as visa free regime and full ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. ‘All Ukrainians hope for the EU to adhere to their commitments – not long before the third anniversary of the revolution of Dignity’, Gerashchenko said.
