MOSCOW, March 28, /ITAR-TASS/. Bolivia has voted against the U.N. General Assembly resolution on Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
On March 27, the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution against the secession referendum in Crimea, which was part of Ukraine but seceded from it and reunified with Russia last week. The resolution was adopted by a 100-11 vote with 58 abstentions. The document urges countries not to recognise Crimea’s accession to Russia after the referendum held on March 16.
“Bolivia has made it clear that it rejects any manipulations aimed at misinterpreting history and isolating Russia,” Bolivian Ambassador in Moscow Maria Luisa Ramos said on Friday.
“Certain countries have unleashed an information war against Russia and misinterpreted the notions underpinning Crimea’s reunification with Russia,” she said.
“Those who study the Russian history know the Republic of Crimea was part of Russia. In 1954 Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev handed Crimea to Ukraine as a gift. Both Russia and Ukraine were part of the Soviet Union,” Ramos said.
“Kosovo and Crimea should not be compared. Unlike Kosovo, mostly Russians lived in Crimea before as they do now but nobody asked them about their wish when the Soviet Union ceased to exist,” Ramos said.
“Western mass media use the term ‘annexation’ related to the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. At the referendum Crimean residents were asked the question about reunification with Russia. The concepts ‘annexation’ or ‘separatism’ are unacceptable,” she said.
“We express solidarity with Russia and come against information, economic, financial and hacker attacks on it. We’re sure that it is necessary to work hard to spread true information all around the world,” Ramos said.
