Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko called OSCE to pay closer attention to human rights observance in the occupied Crimea, where Russian authorities abuse power and exercise brutal repressions. He said this during the United Nations Security Council session on the priorities of the Austrian presidency in OSCE, reports the press service of the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to UNO in Twitter.
“We call on the OSCE to pay closer attention to the situation of human rights observance in the occupied Crimea, where Russia is exercising the unprecedented repressions,” Yelchenko said.
“Instead of fulfilling Minsk agreements, Russia is putting political pressure, blackmails and organizes military provocations,” the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN added.
The lasting Russian aggression against Ukraine and its negative consequences remain one of the main threats for the European security, according to Yelchenko.
Earlier it was reported that Klimkin calls for UN Security Council reform due to abuse of veto right by "one state". According to him, the problem is that the conflicts creator on the continent is sitting at the table as a permanent member of the Security Council.
