Speaking to the UN Human Rights Council, Minister for Foreign Trade of Finland Lenita Toivakka expressed the support for the sovereignty of Ukraine and said that Finland does not recognize the Russian annexation of Crimea.
“Finland supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine and does not recognize the annexation of Crimea. We stress the need for full implementation of Minsk Agreements by all parties,” said Lenita Toivakka.
The Minister noted that since the beginning of the military conflict in Donbas, more than 2.5 million people, including tens of thousands of those with disabilities, have been forced to flee their homes.
The politician also expressed concern over numerous human rights violations on the territories under the control of Russian militants that have been reported until now.
At the end, she added that there is quite a complicated situation with human rights in Crimea, and especially with rights of minorities.
