Mykola Skoryk addressed Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba

Mykola Skoryk, MP from OPPOSITION PLATFORM – FOR LIFE, addressed Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba for official explanations on the position of the Ukrainian delegation to the UN, which voted against the adoption of a resolution on combating the glorification of Nazism.

On November 18, at a meeting of the UN General Assembly’s Committee on Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Affairs, 122 countries supported the draft resolution “On combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”.  The United States and Ukraine only voted against.

“Which values ​​are protected by the decision of the Ukrainian diplomatic corps to vote against the above-mentioned draft resolution?  What official position and arguments were expressed by Ukrainian representatives to the UN to justify such a decision?”  the MP’s address to the head of the Ukrainian MFA says.

“About 20 states co-authored the resolution.  By voting against, the representatives of Ukraine opposed the intention of the world community to condemn the heroization and propaganda of Nazism and neo-Nazism,” Mykola Skoryk summed up.
