Ukrainian MP Mustafa Jemilev, speaking at a meeting of the UN Security Council on March 31 in New York behind closed doors, said Ukraine is waiting from the world community effective measures to liberate the country from occupation, press-secretary of Mejlis Lilia Muslimova said, according to Ukrinform.

"The meeting was opened with Mustafa Jemilev's speech, in which he voiced hope that the world community will take effective measures to free Ukraine from the occupation and prevent such aggressive actions against sovereign states," Muslimova said.

In his report Jemilev, in particular, expressed concern about "the recent increased statements of various Western political scientists and public figures that Crimea has already been lost, that it is unlikely to be freed in the coming years, and that all efforts should be made to ensure that Russian troops do not move deep into the territory of Ukraine."

If such a position prevails, for the citizens of Ukraine this will mean that the great powers that signed the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, guaranteeing the security and territorial integrity of Ukraine in exchange for abandoning nuclear weapons, simply deceived," Jemilev noted.
