Belarus has experienced how destructive and unfair the country of UN resolutions, and has always voted against them, said the official Commissioner of the foreign Ministry of Belarus Dmitry Mironchik, explaining the Minsk's decision to vote against the decision of the United Nations across Crimea.
"The position of Belarus on Ukraine has not changed a single millimeter. The question about procedure of consideration of human rights in the UN is a completely different plane and our firm belief, is irrelevant to the topic of territorial integrity of Ukraine. Belarus has experienced how destructive and unfair the mechanism of country-specific resolutions, and firmly believed that their adoption – a road to nowhere, " - said in his statement on the Internet representation of the MFA of the Republic.
It is noted that this practice developed during the cold war and the United Nations by individual countries only to promote their own interests." We always openly vote against country-specific resolutions where they have not been considered – in Geneva or new York. This is not evidence of the support of States that become objects of the resolutions, as evidence of our consistent rejection of the hypocritical approach to the topic of human rights, which imposed United Nations individual States on the principle of "I know better what you need to do," emphasizes Mironchik. He stresses that in this matter Belarus supports India, Indonesia, China, Russia and other countries, " which together represent more than fifty percent of the population of the planet."" By the way, this Position has been brought by the Minister of foreign Affairs of Belarus Vladimir Makei to their colleagues from other States, requests for clarification, as well as Among them the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin, a telephone conversation which took place yesterday the vote, " said Mironchik." All such (country-specific) documents, there were four, but the "pinch" Belarus wanted to question only one of them associated with Ukraine ", - said Mironchik. Before the 1st Deputy speaker of Parliament, the Commissioner of Kiev in the humanitarian sub-group on Donbass Irina Gerashchenko said that the Ukrainian authorities regard as "a knife in the back" expression of the will of Belarus against the draft resolution on the situation of human rights in Crimea.
