Crimea ready to submit draft resolution on human rights abuses in Ukraine
The Crimean authorities are ready to present a draft resolution on human rights violations in Ukraine to the UN General Assembly (UNGA), the head of the Crimean committee on inter-ethnic relations, Zaur Smirnov, said.
"We receive requests from the Ukrainians to appeal to the UN on the issue of flagrant violations of human rights in their country…. Crimea is ready to present to the UN General Assembly a draft resolution on human rights violations in Ukraine," Sputnik cited him as saying.
Smirnov noted that the Ukrainian people could not appeal to the UN by themselves because they were frightened, since freedom of thought is suppressed in Ukraine. Different radical religious and nationalist groups, promoting the ideas of fascism, antisemitism and others, are gaining popularity in Ukraine, Smirnov added.
On Monday, the UNGA adopted a resolution calling for international monitoring of human rights situation in Crimea.
