Ukraine plans to vote on new resolution on Crimea in November – Klimkin

Ukraine is now conducting preparatory work and mobilizing international support for the vote on a draft resolution of the UN General Assembly entitled "Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Ukraine)" in November.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin stated this at a briefing on Tuesday, October 31, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Today, in New York, we will submit a new draft resolution on Russia's violation of human rights in the occupied Crimea ... Now we decide on a voting date. I can say beforehand that we plan it for this month [November]. We will report on an exact date in a few days," Klimkin said.

He has informed that Deputy Foreign Minister Serhiy Kyslytsia is in New York and "purposefully addresses this issue." Klimkin noted that this resolution included very clear and specific requirements to the Russian Federation and should become a reliable basis for the de-occupation of Crimea. He informed that Ukraine was consulting with friends and partners to ensure its effective voting.

Klimkin noted that this resolution could be used in the future in legal proceedings against Russia, in particular in The Hague, as well as at all levels where Ukraine started such processes.
