Russia uses terrorist methods in occupied Crimea and Donbas – Kuleba.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba believes that the global community should not turn a blind eye to the terrorist methods used by the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas.

He said this during the 2nd Ministerial Meeting of the Group of Friends of Victims of Terrorism, which took place as part of the general debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly.

Kuleba condemned terrorism and violent extremism as one of the key challenges to international peace and development. The foreign minister also drew the participants' attention to the experience of Ukraine, which for the seventh year in a row has been opposing the armed aggression and terrorist methods of the Russian Federation in Donbas and Crimea.

"The international community shouldn’t close its eyes to a UNSC Member silencing human rights defenders, civic activists and journalists in the illegally occupied Crimea under the guise of counter-terrorism measures or terrorizing civic population in the Donbas, Eastern Ukraine," Kuleba said.

The minister stressed the importance of consolidating international efforts to ensure full respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms of the victims of terrorism and provide assistance during their recovery.

“Our task is to ensure that all perpetrators, organizers, mentors and sponsors of terrorist activities are brought to justice,” the minister said.

The Group of Friends of Victims of Terrorism is an international political association of like-minded countries dealing with the problems of protecting the rights of people who have suffered as a result of terrorist acts.
