Ukraine’s Permanent Representative to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko

Ukraine’s Permanent Representative to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko informed the Secretary-General of the Organization António Guterres on the new wave of persecution of the Crimean Tatars on the peninsula, as Ukrinform reported.

“Gross violations of the human rights of the Russian Federation on the temporary occupied Crimea should trigger a strong and consolidated reaction from the international community so that the illegally detained people were released and to prevent humans’ suffering in the future,” Yelchenko stated.

Besides, Ukraine demands Russia to implement the resolution of the UN General Assembly “On the situation with the human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol” and an interim decision of the International Court on the case “Ukraine against Russia”.
