President Petro Poroshenko informed that in the framework of the general policy of de-occupation of Crimea, Ukraine would initiate the adoption of the UN General Assembly’s resolution on the human rights violations in Crimea. “We, in Ukraine, count on the international support for the given Ukrainian initiative,” the President said.
