The updated draft resolution on the situation of human rights in the Crimea and Sevastopol, which the Ukrainian delegation made in the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, contains a number of new requirements to Russia. This was announced by permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko, reports UKRINFORM.

In addition, the document contains an appeal to the Secretary General of the organization for the coordination of UN agencies in the Crimea.

According to Yelchenko, the new requirements aimed at fulfilling Russia’s international obligations to promote de-occupation of the Peninsula.

First, according to him, the resolution confirms that between Ukraine and Russia there is an international armed conflict. Second, the document condemns the use in the temporarily occupied territory of the Russian laws and the forced transfer of Ukrainians Russian citizenship.

Thirdly, the resolution calls for Russia to comply with an interim court decision of the UN to restore the rights and freedoms of citizens of Ukraine in Crimea.

Earlier today it was reported that Ukraine has introduced a new UN resolution on Crimea. 34 countries supported it and sponsored.
