Ukraine expects the UN General Assembly to join the Crimean Platform. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"Given the UN's role in the de-occupation of Crimea, in particular in the context of the resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly on the territorial integrity of Ukraine, the problem of the militarization of Crimea and the protection of human rights in Crimea, Ukraine hopes for the UN to join the Crimean Platform," the statement says.
The Foreign Ministry noted that they count on a more active and constructive approach on the part of the UN leadership to countering the ongoing military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
It is also noted that the organizations of the UN system, in particular the UN Development Program (UNDP), continue to play an important role in supporting the course of socio-economic reforms in Ukraine, achieving the goals of sustainable development, ensuring the protection of human rights and the rule of law.
"One of the most successful examples of our cooperation is overcoming the humanitarian consequences of Russian aggression. We are ready for further cooperation in this area to meet the needs of the affected civilian population along the line of demarcation and in the temporarily occupied territories," the ministry said.
At the end of September, during a speech at the UN General Assembly, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky called on world leaders to join the Crimean Platform.
