The draft resolution condemns the infringement on human rights, discriminating measures and practices against population of the temporary occupied Crimea, including Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians, by the Russian occupational authorities.

The preamble of the draft resolution condemns the temporary occupation of the part of the territory of Ukraine - the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

Russian representative Zagainov said the draft resolution was biased.

The Ukrainian delegation announced that the vote on the draft resolution will be at the third committee of the UN General Assembly on November 15.

The third committee tackles social and humanitarian issues.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukraine counts on support of Kuwait in adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of a Resolution on infringement of human rights in the Russia-annexed Crimea on November 15.
