UNITED NATIONS, June 17. /ITAR-TASS/. An updated draft resolution on Ukraine Russia presented at the United Nations Security Council on Monday reiterates Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and puts a larger part of responsibility for ensuring security and rights of Ukrainian citizens on the Kiev authorities.
The document, which was made available to journalists on Tuesday, reiterates sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine and stresses the necessity of urgent efforts to stabilize the situation in that country by peaceful means. It stresses that the Ukrainian authorities are responsible for ensuring protection and security of Ukrainian citizens and observance of their rights and freedoms.
The draft resolution condemns artillery shelling of residential quarters, civil facilities and humanitarian convoys. It expresses serious concern over reports coming from Ukraine’s eastern regions about the use of incendiary bombs and other prohibited inhumane weapons in densely populated areas.
The document also expresses support to peace settlement efforts based of the Geneva communique of April 17 and the roadman of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
On Monday, Russian Permanent Representative at the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said that the Russian delegation had done its best to make the text of the resolution more balanced so that it could win broader support of the United Nations Security Council members. He said the resolution could be passed if Western countries at the Security Council could give up the idea that they must justify whatever the Kiev authorities might do.
