Russia’s actions in Crimea and the east of Ukraine are a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and are in direct contravention of international law, including the UN Charter. We are also concerned by Russia’s selective application of human rights conventions, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. These ongoing violations demonstrate Russia’s disregard for international law.
