Counteraction to Russian aggression and the resulting gross violation of human rights in the occupied territory are Ukraine’s membership priorities in the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Serhiy Kyslytsia said this, speaking at the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council, the press service of the Foreign Ministry reports.

"A key task of our delegation in the UN Human Rights Council will be to oppose Russian aggression and the resulting gross violation of human rights in the occupied territory of Ukraine. The international community must continue to exert pressure on the Russian Federation to force it to comply with the international obligations, including within the international humanitarian law," the press service of the Foreign Ministry quotes Kyslytsia as saying.

The critical in this context is the access to the peninsula for the international organizations, including the UN, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, which would monitor the observance of human rights by the Russian government, the diplomat noted.
