UN committee adopts resolution on human rights violations in Crimea


The Third Committee of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UNGA) has approved the resolution on violating human rights in occupied Crimea. It is the third time that the Committee which is engaged in social, humanitarian affairs and human rights issues has endorsed such resolution. the United Nations General Assembly will consider two resolutions on Ukraine at the 73rd session in December: one that focuses on the violation of human rights in Crimea and the other on the militarization of the Sea of Azov. International organizations recognized the occupation and annexation of Crimea illegal and condemned Russia’s actions.

Russian human rights violations in Crimea are targeted at; anyone that protests Moscow's illegal Crimea annexation, the Crimean Tatar people, and all religions except the Russian Orthodox religion.

Regarding the Azov Sea, Russia is strangling maritime traffic bound for Ukraine ports by using the new Crimea Bridge as a pass-thru checkpoint.
