SIMFEROPOL, December 20. /TASS/. Resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on Crimea, contrary to the will of the inhabitants of the Republic and does not protect their interests, said the Deputy of the state Duma from region Andrey Kozenko.
The UN General Assembly on Tuesday by a majority of votes a resolution condemning alleged which in the Crimea are a violation of human rights and alleged “illegal establishment by the Russian Federation laws, jurisdiction and administration” on the Peninsula. Russia in the document, which in November was approved by the 3rd Committee of the GA, called the “occupying power”.
“This is not the first statement by the UN, is not protecting the rights of the people of the whole region – Republic of Crimea and Vice versa, contrary to their will expressed at the referendum in March 2014,” he said on Wednesday to the correspondent of TASS.
According to the parliamentarian, the UN “has lost credibility together with the principles which in his time was founded and has become a tool of political games.” “Decisions and resolutions, in fact, have no effect on the real situation in the world,” he said.
The Deputy of the state Duma from region Ruslan Balbec, in turn, noted that the UNGA resolution was adopted without a trip to the Peninsula and communicate with the Crimeans. “Objective officials of the UN resolution was enough to listen to the rogue of the Crimean Tatar people and a couple of Ukrainian channels to watch – this was based the evidence base resolution, which I would call “useless scrap of paper,” said Balbec the correspondent of TASS.
The usual “blindness” of the West
State Duma Deputy, former Prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya on its part noted that is not surprising “blindness” of Western countries who vote for such resolution. “Already familiar “blindness” and the fear of a huge Russia on the part of those who stubbornly deny the obvious about the choice of the Crimean people, whose rights they “care” just ridiculous,” Taylor wrote Wednesday on his page in Facebook.
While Poklonskaya noted a significant number of countries that voted against the resolution and abstentions from voting. “I am glad that absurd, against “the resolution on human rights in Crimea”, the UNGA voted in 26 countries and 76 abstained. In my opinion, these States demonstrated their independence, the adequacy of and, most importantly, respect to guaranteed including the UN Charter, human rights, the choice of the Crimean people and our country”, – believes the parliamentarian.
“Disservice to Ukraine”
In turn, the Deputy of the state Duma of Sevastopol Dmitry Belik said that the new UN resolution is a disservice to Ukraine. “If the UN wanted to make a nod to the Kiev, it did him a disservice, because, literally taking the resolution on Crimea, tomorrow Ukraine will seriously start to prepare for the capture of the Peninsula, under the slogan of the UN resolution,” said TASS Deputy.
Thus, according to Belik, a new UN resolution is either a deliberate provocation or incompetence, “but anyway, the impression that in the General Assembly write the obituary of Ukraine”.
“It seems that the UN has established printing press for anti-Russian resolutions on almost all the news from the General Assembly relate to the Crimea, which allegedly violated human rights,” – said Belik.
