Your Excellency Mrs Retno Marsudi, Minister of Foreign Affairs

of the Republic of Indonesia,

Excellencies,

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

I’m honoured and pleased to participate and deliver a statement at the 12th Bali Democracy Forum. 

We in Ukraine, consider the Forum as an important international event on the comprehensive democracy issues. We also believe that promoting democratic ideals, values and principles remain a vital task in the modern world.

On behalf of H.E. Mr Vadym Prystaiko, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, I would like to express sincere gratitude to H.E. Mrs Retno Marsudi, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, as well as to the Government of Indonesia, for organizing and conducting this Forum. 

I wish all participants fruitful discussions and valuable deliverables.

 

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

Let me draw your attention that the current year was the elections year in Ukraine. Like Indonesians, Ukrainians also voted for the President and the Parliament in 2019.

What we saw in the Ukrainian elections was democracy in action. Size-wise, Ukraine is the largest country in Europe and what the international community witnessed was free and fair elections. These are the signs of a civilized democracy.

With the new President, Government and Parliament Ukraine remains on a clear path to the Euro Atlantic integration. The route map was set some years ago and it’s a one-way journey. We share the same values as our Western neighbours and partners.

Let me emphasize that recent elections in Ukraine once again demonstrated to the world our strong will for freedom, democracy and the rule of law. The new leadership of Ukraine is committed to bringing lasting peace to our Homeland as well as implementing important reformsincluding developing an attractive investment climate, driving a culture of innovation, promoting the digital economy.

Ukraine’s ambitious transformative journey continues despite ongoing Russian aggression, which began in 2014 with the occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea and continues with the armed aggression in Donbas.

Despite the existence of international law and hundreds of governmental and non-governmental organizations designed to protect it, my country defends its sovereignty and territorial integrity with weapons and losing its citizens.

In the given circumstances Ukraine’s close partnership with trusted friends and allies remains vitally important. We put huge expectations and hopes in the much-awaited Normandy summit. On Ukraine’s initiative, the leaders of France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia will meet in Paris on the 9th of December in an attempt to advance efforts for conflict’s peaceful resolution.

The new leadership of Ukraine, from its side, is committed to doing the utmost to achieve peace with the final goal of the de-occupation of the Ukrainian territories. We adhere to the Minsk Agreements and call on the Russian side to abide by them. It is obvious that without Russian’s will and practical counter steps the war can’t be stopped.

 

 Ladies and gentlemen,

         

The Universal Human Rights Declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on the 10th of December 1948. It is sad to acknowledge that after 70 years systematic human rights violations are perpetrated by Russia - one of the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council.

I avail myself of this opportunity to stress that Ukraine seeks wide international support of the resolutions “The problem of 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” and “Human rights situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Ukraine)”, which will be presented at the United Nations General Assembly in the mid-December.

Ukraine and our partners demand that Russia immediately stops its violations of human rights in Crimea and ensure unimpeded access there by the international human rights mechanisms. 

 

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

Despite hard lessons learned, we in Ukraine firmly believe that democracy is the primary option in terms of the improvement of people’s lives, managing diversity, equity, and social justice.

In my final remarks, let me stress that the new experience of inclusive state and democracy-building emerged due to the aggressive and expansionist policies worldwide. Nowadays, countries under external aggression are in the position to restore not only infrastructure but also democracy and the rule of law. And this will be eventually another major challenge for Ukraine.

 

I thank you.
