Citizens of Ukraine who left in the annexed Crimea and refused to change their citizenship to Russian have no access to the basic services. Karen Pierce, the British representative in the UN said so at the UN Security Council meeting. The press office of the British government quoted her as saying.
“I want to draw attention to specific regions where the situation with international humanitarian law is desperate. This is Ukraine, since Ukrainian Crimean citizens are denied access to basic services because they have not changed their citizenship", she noted.
In her report, she also mentioned the critical humanitarian situation in Syria, South Sudan, Mali and in the Sahel region in Africa.
The most outrageous violations were observed in Syria, Pierce said. She admitted that the local residents suffer from famine, as the Red Cross humanitarian cargo do not reach them. People are being evicted in Aleppo and other cities in Syria. The civilians suffered consequences of the use of a weapon of massive destruction, while schools and hospitals are still under fire.
