Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin announced that tomorrow, October 31, Ukraine will present a new draft resolution on human rights in the occupied Crimea at the UN. He said this during a briefing with Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis in Kyiv, reports  

"Tomorrow we will come out with a new very strong and tough project on the situation with human rights in the occupied Crimea, which should condemn Russia's actions to prevent entry of international organizations and humanitarian organizations to the occupied Crimea. It must unequivocally urge Russia to implement the decision of the UN international court, " Klimkin said.

As it was reported earlier Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko at the UNGA said UN should react to Russia’s non-compliance with the decision of the International Court of Justice as to the human rights in the occupied Crimea. 

“Non-compliance with the Court’s decisions is recognized as an internationally wrongful act and a breach of various obligations arising ex contract, and of a duty imposed by customary international law. We believe that cases of non-compliance with the ICJ decisions must be thoroughly addressed by the UN system to find a way for compelling states to implement ICJ decisions in good faith,” he emphasized.

Mr Yelchenko also reminded that Ukraine initiated proceedings in the ICJ against the Russian Federation concerning the Application of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. On 19 April this year, the Court issued the Order responding to Ukraine’s request for the indication of provisional measures in this case.
