The Ukrainian delegation submitted amendments related to the need to reform the UN, and in particular, the UN Security Council, refugee assistance programs, condemnation of russian aggression, in which they emphasized that genocide is one of the main causes of forced migration, and also emphasized that no procedural provision of the national legislation, or provisions regarding the recognition of immunities of foreign states, should prevent victims who were forced to leave their homes from receiving compensation.
During the review of the amendments, representatives of russia tried to remove the mention of russian aggression, however, as a result of the review, all their comments were rejected.
The adopted Resolution, at the initiative of Ukrainian representatives, also states that "in addition to massive human casualties, the ongoing aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine has caused one of the largest displacement crises in the world, with over 7 million Ukrainian refugees and over 6.9 million internally displaced persons".
Despite russia's furious opposition, parliamentarians from 119 countries of the world unanimously adopted the document, which gives a clear assessment and condemnation of the war launched by russia against Ukraine.
The members of the delegation expressed their gratitude to the secretary of the delegation - Eric Kucherenko, who played a key role in the preparation of amendments to the final document.
