The most tragic terrorist attacks of Russian puppets in Kiev will include the destruction of the aircraft “Malaysian airlines” flight MH17, the shelling of residential areas in Mariupol and Kramatorsk destruction of civilian passenger bus near Volnovakha and a deadly explosion during a peaceful Assembly in Kyiv.
In addition, Ukraine claims that the Russian Federation violates the Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination, taking part in the campaign of discrimination against non-Russian communities residing in the occupied territory of the Crimean Peninsula, in particular, communities of ethnic Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars. Kiev says that since the illegal “referendum”, the Russian occupation authorities pursued a policy of cultural destruction of these communities. This discriminatory policy was condemned by the General Assembly of the United Nations and manifested in a ban the activities of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people, the wave of disappearances, killings, unwarranted searches, detentions, attempts to stop broadcasting media, as well as to limit the teaching of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar language.
