Russian lawmaker blasts fresh United Nations resolution on Crimea as political provocation

Russian lawmaker blasts fresh United Nations resolution on Crimea as political provocation”

Crimean officials have slammed a new United Nations resolution that criticizes the human rights situation in the annexed Black Sea peninsula.

Ukraine's First Deputy Parliament Speaker and representative of the Minsk Trilateral Contract Group's humanitarian subgroup Iryna Gerashchenko earlier said the process of exchanging prisoners with Russian-backed separatists in Luhansk and Donetsk regions could be disrupted.

"Respectable worldwide organizations, such as the United Nations, must thoroughly study the true state of affairs, have a weighted approach to any political provocation and give their own assessment of the events that take place in the world", Zheleznyak said.

The resolution calls upon Russian Federation to fulfill 12 recommendations in order to "urgently put an end to all human rights violations in Crimea". "The real objective behind this resolution is heating up the anti-Russian tensions in order to justify the funds spent on containment of our country and on support of the Kiev regime", he said.

The U.N. General Assembly on December 19 adopted a resolution condemning "violations, abuses, measures and practices of discrimination against the residents of the temporarily occupied Crimea, including Crimean Tatars.by the Russian occupation authorities".

"The resolution does not reflect the actual situation in Crimea, or the opinions of Crimeans", Sergei Aksyonov, the head of the peninsula, wrote on his Facebook page after the resolution was passed.

26 countries, including Armenia, Russia, Belarus, Bolivia, Venezuela, India, Kazakhstan, China, Cuba, North Korea, Serbia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and South Africa, voted against, while 76 states abstained.
