At its 75th session, the UN General Assembly voted in favor of a resolution on the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, as well as the Black and Azov Seas. This was reported by Deutsche Welle.
"Russia must completely withdraw its armed forces from the Crimea and immediately stop the temporary occupation of Ukrainian territory without any conditionalities," reads the message.
This document requires Moscow to stop the conscription of Crimean residents to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, as well as the "militarization" of education.
The resolution also highlights the negative impact of Russia's annexation of Crimea on the arms control architecture that is set out in the 2011 OSCE Vienna Document on Confidence- and Security-Building Measures, the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe, and the Open Skies Treaty.
