The General Assembly should adopt the document, which cuts off all speculation regarding the status of the Peninsula.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has instructed the Ukrainian diplomats to prepare a new resolution on Crimea at the next session of the UN General Assembly to end any speculation about the status of the Peninsula.
The head of state wrote on his Facebook page.
“Ukraine continues to struggle for de-occupation of the Crimea, for the rights and freedoms of the Crimean Tatar people. I instructed the diplomats to prepare a new resolution on Crimea at the next session of the UN General Assembly to stop any speculation on the status of Crimea. The General Assembly has repeatedly supported the position of Ukraine, in particular regarding the violation of rights of the Crimean Tatars, therefore, the position of the civilized world remains unchanged: “Crimea is Ukraine”, – said Poroshenko.
He noted that on August 9, the world celebrates the international day of indigenous peoples, and for Ukraine this date is a reminder about the fate of Crimean Tatars living under Russian occupation and subjected to harassment and bullying.
“We are doing everything to bring the time when the indigenous people – the Crimean Tatars will continue to cherish the unique traditions of their ancestors in a free Ukrainian Crimea”, – assured the President of Ukraine.
