Olof Skoog, the Permanent Representative of Sweden to UN claimed during his speech at UNGA in New York that Russia violated the international law and caused the human suffering in Ukraine by the annexation of Crimea and break into Eastern Ukraine as Ukrinform reported.
"The illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia and aggression at the east of Ukraine are the violation of the international law. It led to more than 10,000 deaths and unacceptable human suffering," Skoog said.

"Commitments taken according to Helsinki Agreement and Budapest Memorandum should be observed as well as the fulfillment of the Minsk Agreements should be provided," the diplomat noted.
