Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, commented on the draft resolution on human rights in occupied Crimea, supported by the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, noting that Russia is unable to bring the Ukrainians to their knees.

“UNGA's 3rd Committee passed a resolution on human rights in Crimea. For the first time, the names of Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin were listed. This resolution is about the Ukrainians, whom Russia is unable to bring to its knees and who are supported by the democratic civilized world,” Klimkin wrote on Twitter.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Third Committee of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UNGA) has endorsed the newly updated draft of the resolution titled: "Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine."

The relevant document was backed by 67 UN member states, 26 voted against it, 82 abstained.

After this consideration at the committee, the UNGA draft resolution will be finally considered in December this year.
