Ukraine’s Permanent Representative to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko

Russia's accusations of Crimean Tatars and repressions committed in the annexed Crimea are nothing but a discredit of the international efforts to fight terrorism. Volodymyr Yelchenko, the permanent representative of Ukraine in the UN said this during the open debates in the UN Security Council. 

'As the aggressor state, Russia has been diminishing the international efforts for fighting terrorism by making up fake accusations of terrorist activity and approving the illegal court decisions against innocent people', the diplomat said as quoted by Ukrinform.
