UN General Assembly Approves Resolution On Militarization Of Crimea Sending Signal Of Support To Poroshenko Regime

Click to see the full-size image

On December 18, the UN General Assembly (GA) adopted a resolution voicing “grave concern over the progressive militarization of Crimea” as well as “over reports of the continuing destabilization of Crimea owing to transfers by the Russian Federation of weapon systems, including nuclear-capable aircraft and missiles, weapons, ammunition and military personnel to the territory of Ukraine.”

The document expressed concern over “multiple military exercises of Russian armed forces held in Crimea”, the building of the Kerch Strait bridge between Russia and the Crimean peninsula, the militarization of parts of the Black Sea surrounding the Crimea and the Sea of Azov by Russia adding that these actions “pose further threats to Ukraine and undermine the stability of the broader region.”

The resolution was initiated by the US, the UK, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, and Northern Ireland, and then submited to the UN GA by Ukraine.

66 countries voted in favor of the resolution titled “A/73/L47 Problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov”, 19 – against, 72 – abstained.

Commenting on the situation, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyanskiy said that it is disappointing to observe the “extremely politicized” document being adopted by the UN GA.

“It is disappointing that Kiev and its Western sponsors of the General Assembly have submitted yet another extremely politicized and mendacious subject,” Polyanskiy said. “We regret the vote that has happened, but we are heartened that many states abstained not wishing to have anything with this pernicious Ukrainian enterprise.”

The Kiev regime thus receives new signals that it’s allowed everything and all will be forgiven, while Russia will be unconditionally blamed in advance for all its sins and crimes.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow “deeply regrets” the adoption of the UN GA resolution calling on Russia to stop restricting international navigation in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. He added that Crimea reunited with Russia after its residents expressed their will to do so.

“In relation [to this] we only can express our disagreement with such a position and our regret. We will surely continue to communicate our position to vis-a-vis,” Peskov stressed.

It’s interesting to take a look at the 66 countries, which backed the Crimean resolution. Many of them were NATO and EU member-states, which in the current situation de-facto has no sovereignty in the international relations. Two othe groups are members of The Commonwealth [a UK-controlled body] and smal states in Africa, Oceania, the Caribbean Basin, the Baltic and other regions, which are under almost a direct control of the US in terms of their foreign policy.

Despite all these factors and a strong will of Washington and Brussels establishments to push forward with this anti-Russian resolution, they were able to collect only 66 votes in favour of it. 72 states, including China, India, Egypt and Argentina, abstained; 19 states voted against it. So, the resultion was not supported by a total of 91 states.

As Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Polyanskiy noted, the passed resolution is a clear signal to the Poroshenko regime that the Euro-Atlantic elite fully supports it. This signals come amid reprots about an increased deployment of troops and equipment in eastern Ukraine and the regime of martial law in 10 regions across the country. In this situation, chances of the military escalation are growing in the eastern part of Ukraine are growing.

The text of the draft resolution “A/73/L47 Problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov” [December 5, 2018] and amendments to it made by Syria and Iran [December 13, 2018] are provided below.

It’s important to note that the wording used in this very draft resolution had never been used towards Russia in official UN documents before. Even after Russia’s reunification with Crimea in 2014.

    The most interesting aspect of the vote in my opinion were those who abstained, as many of those are, of have been, in the pockets of the FUKUS gang of thieves.

    No US Christmas cards for them from Nikki Haley and she will be ‘Taking Names’ again just as she departs the UN :)

      What interested me, 193 Member UN States, 66 have no idea of international law, or the legalities, concerning transit of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. What was the history of the 1936 Montreux Convention and why is the US not a signatory? Obviously for a reason. Who were the 19 nations who understand international law and who were the 78 who abstained, or sat on the fence? 2/3 majority, which the agents of Rothschild achieved, just, whilst the United Members of Rothschild, makes a mockery of international law, plus, the ongoing investigation. Just what can they do, which does not violate existing agreements?

      Have you seen this article. Might interest you. Personally, I found it interesting and my ‘OCD to share article of the week’.

      Bellingcat’s Kerch Gaff – How Kurt Volker Bought Ukraine’s Lie

        Thank you for the link. The information there is fascinating and troubling .

        I was at a funeral and the Blue Blood brother of an ex girlfriend of mine in the 70’s was employed by the UK Foreign Office . He is now ’employed’ by a Think Tank that supplies Geo Political data to the UK Government. He is the link in the chain due to his connections.

        After he told me all about it , I mooted that as all the people in the Think Tank were from a similar social background (one is his daughter) , education and age, it was surely just an echo chamber .

        He went a bit quiet then :)

          The 70s, I lived in the ‘Home Counties’, growing up in the Catholic faith, owing to my Irish mother. We used to have ‘bomb drills’, including evacuations, instead of fire drills, at school, owing to it being Catholic. I then ended up working in London, moving back, during the IRA campaign. What I found strange, sharing the same relatives as my Irish relatives, was how they would have no problems wishing me dead, owing to being born in England, in order to honour the memory of our ancestors. Yet, without realising, they were actually loyal to the same crowd that created their problems. The elite from the ‘City of London’. There again I might be wrong. However, look at the timing, behind each revolution, together with the creation of the Bolsheviks and Nazis?

          It did not bother me at the time, but, no doubt one of the reasons I might be so vocal in present times. I do not agree with the slaughter of innocents, whatever the reason. Must admit, I did enjoy the humour and fun of the times. However, just before I had my eldest son, everything started changing, owing to ‘think tanks’ and ‘echo chamber’ control.

          Humour went out, owing to politicalised entertainers, on message. Together with our culture, pride and traditions. The movement was in place, up and running as we all got played. Yet, we fall for it, time and time again, decade to decade, century to century. Exactly the same script is played out.

          Seriously hope, we lance the boil, and get a few years peace, till they run the script again.

        There never was a “international law”…….where ? from whom? for whom?

        The “laws” under which we live on planet earth always have been “the law of the strongest”

        What is a law? what is a right? ask the donky americans about their “so called amendments” and what they are worth lol…. ask the foolish suicidal europeans about laws and rights?

        just to mention such bs is insane…..there never were laws or rights on our planet.NEVER.

          What does the UN say with regards ‘self determination’, whilst remembering what the UN Charter is based on?

          International Bill of Human Rights

          Self-determination is recognized as a right of all peoples in the United Nations Charter, Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, known collectively as the International Bill of Human Rights.

          ‘…The United Nations Charter, ratified in 1945, placed the right of self-determination into the framework of international law and diplomacy. The charter states that one of the purposes of the United Nations is “to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace…”

          United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea

          What is the law of the sea? The law of the sea is a body of customs, treaties, and international agreements by which governments maintain order, productivity, and peaceful relations on the sea.

          ‘… 1982 Law of the Sea Convention (LOSC). The LOSC came into force in 1994 upon receiving the necessary number of UN signatories.

          United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea…

          SECTION 2. LIMITS OF THE TERRITORIAL SEA

          Article 3 Breadth of the territorial sea
          Every State has the right to establish the breadth of its territorial sea up to a limit not exceeding 12 nautical miles, measured from baselines determined in accordance with this Convention.

          Article 4 Outer limit of the territorial sea
          The outer limit of the territorial sea is the line every point of which is at a distance from the nearest point of the baseline equal to the breadth of the territorial sea.

          Article 5 Normal baseline
          Except where otherwise provided in this Convention, the normal baseline for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea is the low-water line along the coast as marked on large-scale charts officially recognized by the coastal State.

          While the United States ratified the 1958 Convention, as of late 2013, it had not become a party to the 1982 Convention.

          Are you on mushrooms…?

          There is an entire global legal order that was set up by the major allied powers after WW2…at the center of this is the Security Council, whose resolutions are LEGALLY BINDING on all UN member states…

          The US and Israel are in breach of a number of UNSC resolutions, making them international criminals…the problem is one of enforcement…nobody is going to go to war against the US over the fact that it is now in breach of UNSC 2231, the Iran nuclear deal…US is also in breach of UNSC 1244, passed in 1999 after the illegal US aggression against Serbia…and guaranteeing Kosovo as part of Serbia and the right of Serbian troops and border guards in Kosovo…

          Israel is in breach of several UNSC resolution regarding their squatting on captured territory…also US is guilty of the crime of AGGRESSION and CRIME AGAINST PEACE…along with all ‘allies that participated…in both the 1999 bombing of Serbia and the 2003 illegal invasion of Iraq…

          It is stupid to say there is no international law…there most certainly is…an entire legal framework was carefully setup as the postwar global order…

The week after the bio-assassination of the President of North Korea’s half brother? Mike Morrell, was being interviewed by Charlie Rose, bragging about sending messages. Together with John Kirby, the US Department, dimwit of the month, bragging about sending Russians home in body bags. Just before the Christmas day flight tragedy, which took out the Alexandrov Ensemble and Dr Lisa.

        Statement from Helga Zepp-LaRouche, Founder & Chairwoman of the Schiller Institute, to the Tear-Drop Memorial Event

        Helga Zepp LaRouche

        Putting the relationship between Russia and the U.S. together is the most important precondition for solution of all other problems in the world. If there is no peace between U.S. and Russia, and more than peace, friendship and a spirit of cooperation, the world is in existential danger. Thus, the hopeful potential which exists with the incoming American President to go in this direction, is the most important precedent for everything else. Today’s Bayonne, N.J. event, which the Schiller Institute is proud to contribute to, is meant to be a first step to demonstrate this spirit of solidarity, friendship and humanity.

        Yes I do remember. They were dark days indeed.

        The ‘odds’ on all the ‘accidental /unexplained’ deaths are too high to be realistic and had a helping hand from the US Coalition of Terror I suspect.

    • Leonardo Facchin

      Exactly! I was going to write the same, but your post spared me the effort.

      Almost the entirety of Central and South America, Asia and Africa didn’t vote in favor of the UN resolution. It means that it was approved by countries representing less than 20% of the world population.

      I don’t know if it’s unusual, but it’s humbling nonetheless. Only the US and its imperial colonies/vassals did vote in favor.

      We can compare this vote with the one on resolution 68/262 on the territorial integrity of Ukraine approved on 27 march 2014:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_General_Assembly_Resolution_68/262#/media/File:UN_Resolution_regarding_the_territorial_integrity_of_Ukraine.svg

      A lot less western supporters this time, apparently…

      • FlorianGeyer

        Only last week John Bolton stated that countries that do not vote with the US at the UN will not be given US aid.

        Was this a rather large Fuck Off from those countries who are fed up with US arrogance and who are now looking to Russia and China for commercial support, rather than the guns and theft in offers ‘they cannot refuse ‘ from the shysters in the US ?

        • Leonardo Facchin

          Yep, that’s the most interesting question. I guess only time will tell. But even if it can’t be considered a large Fuck Off, the vote still shows that there are more countries that don’t seem afraid to not blindly align themselves behind the US anymore on the Ukraine issue.

    • northerntruthseeker .

      Absolutely…. This UN “resolution” is just to get the world one step closer to an all out war.. And of course to give Ukraine the eventual “green light” to attempt to reconquer Crimea which was NEVER theirs in the first place!

      • Dave

        UNGA resolutions aren’t the official position of the UN, and are explicitly non-binding. They’re merely statements of their sponsors and supporters. They carry no weight and don’t guide any UN policy or measures. The majority of General Assembly resolutions are even adopted without a vote.

        The 66 out of 157 governments that supported this resolution represent notably less than 20% of the world’s total population. This resolution, like the one in December 2017, is a resounding defeat of NATO’s claims regarding Crimea and shows Poroshenko that the world doesn’t support his claims.

    Why do they vote, in complete ignorance of international law? Whether it be ‘self determination, or the laws of the seas?

    (‘…What makes the Kerch Incident a short story is the passage Ukraine made through the channel with warships in September 2018. According to the 2003 agreement which governs transit from the Black Sea to the Azov, ships have to follow a specific procedure that isn’t confined to Ukrainian ships.

    Ukraine took warships through the Kerch Strait with Russian escort. This is a matter of record that was and video evidence is abundant showing a Russian escort with a much smaller Russian ship sailing ahead of it. According to the Russians, the Ukrainians used pilot services. Looking at video evidence, this seems to be the case.

    However, directly after, the Ukrainian Navy called it a victory saying they did not call or confirm transit or use a pilot to navigate the shallow channel.

    According to the Kyiv Post, in September the warships radioed ahead to enter the Azov Sea through the Kerch Strait as they approached it. It says they did not follow the official procedure to request permission. This notation is important.

    The Kiev Post goes on to say the ships received pilot services from the Kerch port authority free of charge. According to Ukrainian naval expert Taras Chmut “For the first time, we didn’t just react to the Russians’ steps, but started to set our own game rules.”

    If the September record, which includes the Kyiv Post article as well as onsite video is looked at, the accepted law and procedure in place can be shown and every parties action in November can be weighed against that and the actual agreements…)

    ………………..

    Western sources claim the Russians violated the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). This is a nonstarter because the Azov Sea is a private internal sea by both Ukraine and Russia. It is not the high sea and it contains no exclusive economic zones. If either was the case, it would have made the UNCLOS applicable.

    The accepted law and procedure in Ukraine are described in “Navigating Straits Challenges for International Law” which specifically states the services of the Vessel Traffic Control Center (VTC) are compulsory.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b006067748e992323a572ce544969918e6a8d91a33cc086c7de77f5e4cda7960.jpg

    Ukraine was well aware of its own established law as well as the language of the treaty governing Kerch Strait transit. This voids any concept of free navigation regarding the Strait because transit is done at the discretion of the port authority and established procedures.

    ……………………..

    ‘…Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur is a perfect example of this. She supports both Ukrainian nationalism and ISIS members in Ukraine. Kaptur said Americans owe the families of her Nazi SS serving nationalist cousins in Ukraine an apology for fighting them in WWII. Kaptur offered a eulogy for one Ukrainian ISIS member killed in Ukraine…’

    I have just come across this article, whilst looking for something. Posting the words of Sen. Richard Black, who has done a lot, with regards trying to promote sanity, over in Washington DC, where Russia is concerned. Unlike Haley.

    Remember the ‘Tear of Grief’ Monument, which Russia gave to the people of the US, following events on 9/11? I did not realise, those involved in receiving the gift, held their own memorial service, to the Russians, who lost their lives on Christmas Day, 2016.

    Historic Memorial in Honor of Alexandrov Ensemble at the Tear Drop Memorial… https://larouchepac.com/20170109/historic-memorial-honor-alexandrov-ensemble-tear-drop-memorial

    Message from Sen. Richard Black to the Teardrop Memorial
    A Fond Farewell to Russian Heroes, Who Died for the Cause of Peace on December 25, 2016

    I pray for the families of those Russians who perished last Christmas, while flying to spread beauty to Syria—a land torn asunder by evil schemes of foreign powers.

    How appropriate that the renowned Alexandrov Ensemble is honored at this place by the Schiller Institute Chorus, singing both the Star Spangled Banner and the Russian National Anthem, at a wreath-laying for the victims of the air crash. The American and Russian choirs shared a dedication to restoring civility, by appealing to the higher intellect. Their legacy will live on.

    The Tear Drop 9-11 Memorial was a gift that Russia gave Americans to honor the 3,000 Americans slain by al Qaeda on 9-11. That monument was inscribed “To the Struggle against World Terrorism.” How fitting that we honor men and women who gave their lives in that struggle. Their gifts contributed greatly to peace and harmony among men.

    This event comes at an historic moment in Russian-American relations an exciting time of joint commitment to civilization, religious freedom, and the restoration of world peace. I am grateful that Russia stepped forward militarily; carrying the burden of confronting world terrorism, while much of the world chose a darker path.

    Tomorrow’s American leadership gives hope that the world will step back from the provocative actions propelling us toward a world war that neither Americans nor Russians wanted. May God grant peace to the nations of the world.

    And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest forever with Him.

    —Richard H. Black Senator of Virginia 13th District

      They have always gone for neutral, unless their vote makes a difference. Remember, how much the Chinese have invested in Crimea, post 2014, whilst still waiting for their $3 billion, worth of grain from Ukraine, fully paid in advance?

      I was also disappointed with China’s position. You’d think they’d have more balls to vote down such resolutions in favor of their allies rather than always think of themselves and take the neutral position.

    How much did Nuland state the US had spent on Ukraine and enticing them to support the US version of political thought?
    So why do the EU believe they can do the same in Russia?
    No doubt, looking to influence the voters, who were not around during the Yeltsin era and no understanding of life under oligarchs loyal to Rothschild, when Russia only received 20 cents, to every $US, of their natural resources. Which contributed to the bankruptcy of the nation.

    Remember, 2000, when Russia was bankrupt. Remember, the days before the people of Ukraine embraced the Maidan.

    Why does the EU believe Russia wishes to return to the old Yeltsin era?

    Just one more confirmation of Russian aggression and Putin’s plan to rebuild the USSR by starting WW3. Millions of Russians will die, yet Putin cares not for the Russian people. He only seeks more power through death and destruction.

    Here is a little part of the propaganda show – “The resolution was initiated by the US, the UK………..Turkey, Ukraine, and Northern Ireland, and then submitted to the UN GA by Ukraine………… Northern Ireland is in the UK.

    As for the rest, if I was Russia, China, Iran or the combination, I would hope India and Pakistan also; the time to make a first strike against the US is now – the US are totally out of control and becoming more desperate by the day (which makes them more dangerous).

      Wonder where Turkey really sit? US, Ukraine or Russia?

      Turkstream
      S-400

      Ukrane – Black market trafficking

      US – assassination and will hand over Gulen, if they walk away from S-400.

      Constantinople to Crimea- Turkish desire?
      Black Sea, with Turkey in control. The US is not a signatory of the 1936 Montreux Convention.

      Turkstream – where they are laying down the transit pipework in the Black Sea. So why would Turkey want trouble in the Black Sea?

      Does Erdogan control his UN representatives? Do they speak for Turkey and Erdogan or their Rothschild Masters?

    Big deal…UNGA resolutions are NOT legally binding, so they don’t mean anything…UN Security Council Resolutions ARE legally binding and are in fact the highest law on the planet, and the US and its EU vassals are in breach of many many UNSC resolutions…serial criminals…

    How do you interpret the support of 66 out of 157 countries, with those 66 countries representing significantly less than 20% of the world’s total population, as the UN giving Porshenko a signal of support? That outcome is damning against NATO’s claims regarding Crimea.

    UNGA resolutions are the official position of the UN, and are non-binding. They’re merely statements of their sponsors and carry no weight.

      Not forgetting, there are 193 UN Member States, which makes it even worse.

      The United Nations member states are the 193 sovereign states that are members of the United Nations (UN) and have equal representation in the UN General Assembly.[2] The UN is the world’s largest intergovernmental organization… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Member_states_of_the_United_Nations

    Perfect opportunity for Mr. Putin to award more medals to Crotian fascists. Good work.

    Just read the UN response, whilst cracked up laughing. Why?

    Respect the borders.

    Well, even the UN, has confirmed the borders of Russia and Ukraine have never been ratified, in accordance with international law, since the fall of the Soviet Union, back in 1991, so how can respect of the borders come into it? Plus, do they not realise how shallow the Sea of Azov is? When Ukraine stated they wished to blow up the Kerch Strait Bridge, what was Russia meant to do?

    ‘…The CIA factbook further notes that “the dispute over the boundary between Russia and Ukraine through the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov remains unresolved, despite a December 2003 framework agreement and ongoing expert-level discussions…’

    ………………………
    According to a statement from UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, Ukraine is missing borders.

    Experts operating under the aegis of the UN Security Council came to the following conclusion about Ukraine’s borders: Within the framework of international law , it turns out that, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine has not been properly registered as a state, according to the UN demarcation of its borders. According to the accepted contractual framework of the Russian Commonwealth, or Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the country remains on the limits of the administrative boundaries of the USSR, over which the UN has no legal jurisdiction. The EU currently backs this position. The only established borders are on the European side.

    ‘…Russia’s treaty rights to review the borders of Ukraine applied to areas that were largely populated by ethnic Russians, including Crimea, Donbass, and northern Kazakhstan. In addition, Russia claimed the right to protect its diaspora population no matter where they were located in the world. [See Roman Solchanyk, “Crimea: Between Ukraine and Russia,” in Maria Drohobycky, ed., Crimea: Dynamics, Challenges, and Prospects (Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., 1995), pp. 6-7.]

    ‘…Following this, the borders were further cemented by the 1997 Friendship Treaty. Fixed borders are a required standard for Ukraine’s recognition by the international community and for any consideration of NATO membership. According to Dale B. Stewart, meeting this standard meant that all questions relating to the establishment of borders needed to first be completely resolved. [See his “The Russian-Ukrainian Friendship Treaty and the Search for Regional Stability in Eastern Europe,” December, 1997.]

    ………………………….

    Understanding Borders

    ‘…The process of establishing international borders starts with the treaties that bind the countries involved to their mutual recognition. In the case of Ukraine and Russia, those treaties include the original CIS Treaty and the Friendship Treaty.

    Creation of the borders begins with the surveying and mathematical work needed to establish approximate locations. The next step is demarcation, which determines the locations of border markers and crossings. To be recognized internationally, the borders need to be registered and demarcated at the UN in accordance with internationally accepted standards and procedures. Lastly, the borders must be delineated–specified in the way you would see them on a map..’

    …………………………….

    Human Rights in Crimea, where the Tatars have been rehabilitated, the pensioners have seen their pension increased, plus, $millions spent on infrastructure, with no blood loss. Compare that with human rights violations, over in Ukraine.

    ………………………….

    What is the UN Charter based on, yet, they do not recognise ‘self determination’ for the people of Crimea? Even the UN did not manage to force through the bill, trying to ignore the wishes of the people of Crimea, which gets even less support, when presented time and time again.

    ‘…The UN General Assembly has NEVER declared the the Crimean referendum and the unification of Crimea with Russia illegal under the “Uniting for Peace” procedure. The UN General Assembly did vote on the question of the Crimean referendum in March 2014 but the resolution was non-binding and was not brought under the “Uniting for Peace” procedure.Moreover only 100 out of the 193 UN Member States supported it (11 states including of course Russia voted against it; 58 states including India and China and totally 58% of the world’s population abstained, and 11 states including Iran and Israel failed to take part in the vote, which is a form of abstention)…’ ( The Saker poses a legal question to Alexander Mercouris (email exchange http://thesaker.is/the-saker-poses-a-legal-question-to-alexander-mercouris-email-exchange/ )

    2014 – 193 UN Member States. 100 voted with Ukraine, 11 against, 58 abstained, 24 absent. 53% for 47% uninterested and against. ‘…For a resolution to pass the UN General Assembly it must have the support of more than half of all UN Member States ie. – since the UN has 193 Member States – at least 97 UN Member States must vote for it. In other words the resolution on the Crimean referendum was not merely non-binding but it only just squeaked past with just 100 votes in favour…'(http://thesaker.is/the-saker-poses-a-legal-question-to-alexander-mercouris-email-exchange/ )

    2016 – 193 UN Member States. 73 votes in favor, 23 against, 97 absent. Owing to only 73 votes for, did not pass the resolution.

    The above resolution: ‘… Despite all these factors and a strong will of Washington and Brussels establishments to push forward with this anti-Russian resolution, they were able to collect only 66 votes in favour of it. 72 states, including China, India, Egypt and Argentina, abstained; 19 states voted against it. So, the resolution was not supported by a total of 91 states…’ (2/3 need 64, if they went for 2/3, it only just passed).

    Notice how they step back, with the inclusions?

    Not forgetting their ignorance, with regards understanding the Sea of Azov does not come under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, owing to being such a small and shallow sea.

      Great post Hants. Love the breakdown.

      I knew something like this (the status of Ukraine as a state) was causing problems, but just hope Russia and the republics get to ‘realign’ towards Russia instead of being NATO Cannon Fodder so that EU/U.$. troops don’t have to ‘die.’
      You put it together perfectly.

      Thank you for sharing.

      • AM Hants

        Thank you. Love the work of George Eliason, who I first came across, over on OpEd News with his ‘Ukraine Without Borders’ article. I share it often, plus, mentioned the lack of borders, in the comment, courtesy of his research. He also provided the information, in an article he published over on ‘Mint Press’, which provided the legal advice, regards the Sea Of Azov.

        The UN should seriously get Diplomats who understand international law, rather then rely on members from the local mobsters, if they wish to debate problems, covered by legal constrictions.

    Meanwhile over in Crimea. Have the UN tried speaking to the people, to hear what they want?
