Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told reporters after a Cabinet meeting, Censor.NET reports referring to Ukrinform.
"From the very start, we have been persuaded to make the resolution softer. That is, without stating it is a temporary occupation, without naming those responsible for this occupation, without a clear call for granting the United Nations access to the occupied territory of Crimea. We've chosen the ultimate text," Klimkin said.
He has no doubt that Russia's priority was to "kill" the resolution, including with procedural tricks. However, Ukraine has achieved a deserving result.
The minister is convinced the adoption of this document is a political signal that Ukraine may refer to it in courts and elsewhere.
"We've got a strong instrument to pressure Russia to allow the United Nations to the territory of Crimea," Klimkin said.
