Ukraine appeals to UN Secretary General regarding numerous violations by Russia over "sea parade" in occupied Sevastopol
Ukraine has addressed official channels to the UN Secretary-General regarding Russia's repeated violations of international law and numerous other resolutions in connection with the holding of a "sea parade" in occupied Sevastopol.
This is stated in the official letter of the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Sergey Kyslytsya to the UN Secretary General, which is available to Ukrinform.
"Ukraine demands from the Russian Federation to immediately stop international illegal actions against the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and to take comprehensive measures to deoccupy part of Ukraine's sovereign territory", - the UN Secretary General said in a statement.
According to the official letter, Ukraine calls the holding of a "sea parade" in occupied Sevastopol without the consent of the Ukrainian side illegal actions. In addition, Ukraine condemns Russia's illegal demonstration of military force and the militarization of occupied Crimea and Sevastopol, as it "poses a significant threat to regional security".
According to Kyslytsya, the military parade is another violation of international law by the Russian Federation, including numerous resolutions of the UN General Assembly, as well as Ukrainian legislation.
In this regard, the Ukrainian side called Russia's actions "conscious steps" aimed at increasing tensions in Ukrainian-Russian relations.
At Ukraine's request, the letter addressed to the Secretary-General will be circulated as an official document of the UN General Assembly and Security Council.
