The document "Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine" was supported by 64 UN member states, 23 states opposed it, including Russia, and 86 abstained from the voting.
The resolution was co-sponsored by Ukraine, Georgia, Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, and other partner countries.
"Russia continues discriminating the inhabitants of the peninsula: Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians, and persons belonging to other ethnic and religious groups," reads the message.
"On December 14, 1974, the UN General Assembly approved Resolution 3314 (XXIX), which defined the term 'aggression'. For the last seven years, Russia has been grossly violating the UN Charter, this resolution, and its other international legal obligations by carrying out armed aggression against Ukraine," the statement said.
