January 13, 2023

First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar announced that a resolution on the establishment of a special tribunal for the crime of Russian aggression has been put to a vote in the UN General Assembly.

“We call on all responsible states to support the resolution on the establishment of the tribunal, which we are going to submit to the General Assembly”,- she said.

The First Deputy Foreign Minister stressed that the right of force, which Russia barbarously practices against Ukraine, sends a clear signal to everyone present in this hall: no one is safe anymore.

“If a country that abuses the rights and privileges of a permanent member of the Security Council attacks another UN member state, this means only one thing – security is destroyed, international peace is called into question, the rule of law is grossly violated”,- Dzheppar said.
