MOSCOW, 6 March. /TASS/. The UN Security Council will resume on Friday the discussion of the situation in Ukraine. During the open meeting, which is due to begin at 10a.m. New York time (6p.m. Moscow time), the participants in the meeting will discuss political settlement of the conflict in Donbas, the humanitarian situation in the Region as well as the situation around human rights there.
On Monday, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva published another report on the situation in Ukraine. The document highlighted many violations of human rights during the conflict in Donbas and also expressed concern about the situation in Crimea, which in 2014 joined the Russian Federation following a referendum in the republic.
The Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the report saying with regret "not all comments may be called objective." Observers "continue using for conclusions information from doubtful sources." "The Republic of Crimes is a constituent entity of the Russian Federation in compliance with the free legitimate expression of will, which was demonstrated by the residents, and It is not a part of the UN mission’s mandate in Ukraine."
Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Andrey Kelin reproached the Ukrainian authorities for delaying withdrawal of weapons and of refusing to give the OSCE representatives the data on the withdrawals’ locations.
