Crimea responds to UN resolution on human rights on the peninsula

20.12.2019, Simferopol.

Without a personal visit to Crimea it is meaningless to adopt a resolution on human rights, said the Commissioner for human rights in the Russian Federation for Crimea Alexander Molokhov on December 19, RIA Novosti reports.

“Any absentee assessment of the human rights situation in Crimea makes no sense without a direct visit to the peninsula by representatives of foreign delegations and human rights activists,” Molokhov said after the UN adopted a resolution on human rights.

On December 18, the UN adopted a resolution on human rights in Crimea. 65 countries supported the resolution, 23 were against, and 83 abstained. Every year, the number of those in favor of the resolution decreases, for example, in 2016 and 2017, 70 members of the UN spoke in favor, but in 2018, their number fell to 67.
