Yelchenko on the 72th session of the UN General Assembly: On the way Russia will be a lot of surprises

On the way to the Russian delegation to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly will be «many surprises», said permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko in an interview with «UKRINFORM».

He reminded that President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko raised the question of the introduction in the Donbass peacekeeping mission.

«In parallel, we have a number of other ideas, some of which we began implementing last year, over part we will continue to work. All this concerns the question of Russian aggression in Eastern Ukraine and Crimea. In Crimea, want to remind about the resolution, first approved in the third Committee and subsequently in plenary about human rights in Crimea and Sevastopol. On the basis of this document we develop next steps. This is normal, the standard work in the UN. We work with partners, and we have a solid support group. Of course, we expect some new decision of the General Assembly on this issue, but, in any case, it will be based on the findings that will be made at the Council meeting on human rights, which since the beginning of the week also begins its work in Geneva,» – said Yelchenko.

According to the Ambassador, the Ukrainian delegation hopes that Ukraine will elect a new membership of the Council for human rights.

«There are a number of initiatives which I do not want to call that «not to reveal all the cards» in advance for our former strategic partner. But they must be sure that in their way will be a lot of surprises. I can only say that it is a lot of questions. The General Assembly has six main committees that cover areas of the economy, human rights, international law, information, and each of them, you can find a lot of moments that Moscow or violated, or simply not fulfilling. Of course, this all would relate to aggression of Russia against Ukraine,» – said Yelchenko.

72nd session of the UN General Assembly will start on September 12.

September 20, Poroshenko will present his vision of the peacekeeping mission in the Donbas.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in the UN General Assembly will not participate.
