Kyiv decisively condemned Moscow’s intentions to conduct the military draft in the occupied Crimea.

‘We decisively protest against Russia’s plan to hold the draft in the temporarily occupied Crimea and Sevastopol. We once again reiterate that the UN General Assembly on the human rights in Crimea and Sevastopol confirmed that the peninsula was illegally occupied by Russia; the document urges Russia to abide by its international commitments, international mechanisms of rights protection and other legal tools,’ the ministry said.

The authority added that the occupant has no right to make citizens serve in its military, neither has it enjoyed the right to put pressure or resort to propaganda, making people volunteer for the army.
