The UN General Assembly adopted the resolution entitled “Problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov”.
The document was supported by 63 countries. Only 17 countries, including Russia, voted against the resolution.
In particular, the resolution states that the occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation undermines the international security architecture and control over weapons, including those capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
The document condemns the construction of Russian military bases in Crimea. In addition, the resolution calls on Russia to stop the military training of children living on the Crimean peninsula with a view to conscripting them into the Russian armed forces.
