Ukraine, with the support of 38 countries, has introduced a draft resolution "The State of Human Rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol" at the United Nations General Assembly, Deutsche Welle reports.
“The main purpose of the resolution is to urge the Russian Federation to ensure the full compliance with its obligations as an occupying power under international law and to ensure safe and unhindered access for international human rights mechanism to the temporarily occupied peninsula in order to monitor and report on the situation in accordance with its mandate,” the Ukrainian mission to the UN stated.
The head of the British Foreign Ministry Boris Johnson said that Great Britain supports the resolution submitted by Ukraine.
Johnson said that he discussed the British support with his Ukrainian colleague Pavel Klimkin, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. According to the British diplomat, the current human rights situation in Crimea is unacceptable.
