The head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov criticized adopted by the Committee of the UN General Assembly a draft resolution on human rights violations on the Peninsula.

On his page in Facebook Aksenov wrote that especially hypocritical phony concern for the rights of the Crimean people looks at the background of events in Ukraine, where «there is a civil war, where kidnappings, murder, and imprisoned dissidents».

«I believe that taking politically-motivated resolutions of the UN undermines your credibility, insults the residents of the Crimea and pushing the Kiev regime to commit further crimes,» — said Aksenov.

According to him, «such resolutions do not reflect the real situation on the Peninsula and broadcast propaganda myths invented by Kiev and Washington». The authors of the document «openly ignore» the opinion of the Crimea, said the head of the Republic.

«Let me remind you that we have repeatedly invited representatives of the UN, OSCE, European Parliament and other international organizations to come to the Crimea, to understand what is really happening in the region and to provide an objective assessment of the situation. Instead, we again received another batch of propaganda and unfounded allegations. However, our invitation remains in force,» — said the head of the region.

According to Aksenov, the peoples of the Peninsula have made their choice freely and consciously, in accordance with the UN Charter and international law.

«In the world understand this, as evidenced by the vote of: a majority of States did not support the resolution», — he added.

This year the number of countries voted for, was 67, against 26, abstentions became more — 82.
