Permanent Representative of Russia Nebenzia described the UN General Assembly’s draft resolution against referendums as provocative.
UN, 12 October – RIA Novosti. Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said that the draft resolution of the General Assembly, which does not recognize the referendums in the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, is provocative.
Earlier Wednesday, the General Assembly passed an anti-Russian resolution not recognizing referendums in liberated areas.
According to the diplomat, the decision has nothing to do with the protection of international rights and the UN Charter. Nebenzya added that in this way, Western countries have solved their own geopolitical tasks and are still trying to use GA members as “extras”.
At the end of September, the United States and Albania, the authors of all countries, international organizations and private structures “Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions of Ukraine” and their participation in Russia.
In addition, they demanded that Moscow immediately withdraw its troops from Ukraine, and also condemned him for “arranging referendums” and “annexing” the DPR, LPR, Kherson region and Zaporozhye. Russia vetoed the bill. Ten countries supported the document, while four abstained, including China and India.
On Monday, Russia requested a secret ballot on the resolution. As Nebenzia explains, this will reduce the number of states that support the project as it will not reflect which country voted for which decision. However, the General Assembly did not support this proposal.
From 23 to 27 September, referendums on accession to Russia were held in four regions. In the DPR, this proposal was supported by 99.23 percent of the electorate, in the LPR – 98.42 percent, in the Kherson region – 87.05 percent, in the Zaporozhye region – 93.11 percent.
On September 30, a ceremony was held in the Kremlin for the signing of agreements on the admission of new territories to Russia. The documents were signed by Vladimir Putin and the regional heads: Denis Pushilin, Leonid Pasechnik, Evgeny Balitsky and Vladimir Saldo.
