“Russia neglected international law by annexing Crimea”, – Denisova in Berlin

November 7, 2019

On Wednesday, the 6th of November, the conference marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall was held in Berlin, during which the Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights, Liudmyla Denisova , stated that Russia had neglected international law and annexed part of the sovereign territory of Ukraine, namely the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. The aforementioned was underlined by Denisova via her Facebook page.

“I have reminded the participants of the epoch-making historical events that preceded the construction of the Berlin Wall, which became a true border between freedom and totalitarianism, and drew historical parallels and analogies of the Berlin Wall period and the aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine”,- the statement claimed.

Denisova stressed that twenty years after the signing of the Budapest memorandum, Ukraine was to become a victim of armed aggression of the Russian Federation.

“Thirteen thousand dead, one and a half million internally displaced, hundreds of millions of euros worth of destroyed and damaged property. But the most outrageous thing are the broken human destinies and the suffering of children”,- she emphasized.

Liudmyla Denisova once again reminded the international community that Russia neglected international law, annexed part of the sovereign territory of Ukraine, namely the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, and continued an armed aggression in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
