The U.S. Mission to the United Nations is proud to co-sponsor a resolution on the human rights situation in Crimea.

“The U.S. is proud to co-sponsor and vote in favor of a resolution on the human rights situation in Crimea. The situation there remains dire as Russian occupation authorities use force and intimidation to suppress dissent and opposition,” the U.S. Mission to the UN posted on Twitter.

The United States also calls on Russia to immediately end its abuses in occupied Crimea, release all Ukrainians unjustly imprisoned for peaceful opposition, and return full control of the peninsula to Ukraine.

“The Russian occupation has severely undermined the fundamental freedoms of expression, association, religion or belief, and peaceful assembly, forcing many to flee. We stand with the people of Crimea, and civil society and human rights defenders working to protect these rights,” the U.S. diplomats underscore.

As reported, a new resolution on the human rights situation in the occupied Crimea was approved by the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly this Wednesday.

The resolution was supported by 63 countries, including the United States and most EU countries. Twenty-two countries, led by Russia, voted against.
