Updated resolution of UN General Assembly “Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine” will include provisions on Crimean platform. The Deputy Head of the Office of the President Andriy Sybiha announced this, as Ukrinform reports.

It is noted that on October 28, the Ukrainian delegation submitted for consideration by the UN General Assembly draft resolutions on human rights in Crimea and the militarization of the peninsula and parts of the Black and Azov Seas.

According to Sybiha, he held talks with Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo and Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ilze Brands Kehris, during which they discussed, inter alia, resolutions on Crimea.

"This is primarily an updated, I will say more - enhanced resolution on the human rights situation in the occupied Crimea," he said. "This enhanced resolution contains provisions on the Crimean platform," Sybiha said.
