The Ukrainian delegation to the UN initiates a March 6 meeting of the UN Security Council under the Arria formula on the violations of human rights in annexed Crimea. Oleh Nikolenko, the spokesman for the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the UN, informed about it on his Facebook page.
"The UN Security Council meeting under the Arria formula on the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol will take place on Friday. Initiators were Ukraine and partner countries - Estonia, the USA, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and Belgium," Nikolenko said.
Discussions will begin at 10:00 a.m. local time (5:00 p.m. Kyiv).
It is expected that the Ukrainian side will make the facts of human rights violations on the peninsula public.
It is worth noting that on December 18, 2019, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that calls on the Russian Federation to stop human rights violations in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
As we reported earlier, the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly took place on February 20.
During the 58th plenary meeting, the situation in temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine was discussed.
