NEW YORK (QHA) -

General statement by more than 30 countries about total human right violations in Crimea has united democratic states in an attempt to put pressure on the aggressor, which annexed Crimea, and force Russia to end this occupation.

- Statement co-authored by 34 states, is quite tough, but very specific, since it corresponds to the present situation on the peninsula. So we voiced it at the third UN Committee, which deals with human rights, even though the Crimea’s occupation covers a much wider range of problems. Next, we will raise this issue in other committees, preparing to submit it to the General Assembly, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Yuriy Sergeyev commented on the statement.
