The election of Ukraine and the United Kingdom to the UN Human Rights Council will strengthen cooperation in the field of human rights, in particular in finding ways to implement the Crimean Platform tasks.

"The simultaneous presence of Ukraine and the United Kingdom in this institution opens up new opportunities for cooperation between our countries in the field of human rights," First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said during a video meeting with UK’s Ambassador for Human Rights Rita French, congratulating the British side on being elected to the UN Human Rights Council for 2021-2023.

Dzheppar thanked the United Kingdom for its assistance in promoting the draft resolution on the human rights situation in Crimea, as well as on other issues of countering Russian aggression within international organizations.

Ukraine’s deputy foreign minister also informed French about the concept, main priorities and goals of the Crimean Platform.

The parties discussed possible ways to implement the Platform tasks in the field of human rights, primarily with the involvement of mechanisms and instruments of the UN Human Rights Council.

Dzheppar and French stressed the importance of regularly informing the international community about human rights violations in the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas, including by the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission.
