Victor Yushchenko delivered a speech at the 60th Session of the UNO General Assembly.

The Head of State stressed that Ukraine intended to defend democratic values all over the world.

“We confirm our devotion to all values that are listed in the Millennium Declaration and we are ready to assert them,” said the President.

He emphasized that Ukraine supported the initiative to form a Human Rights Council as soon as possible. Yushchenko noted that the world “gives us challenges no nation can face independently.”

“Cooperation of all free nations can make people resist old and new threats,” stressed Yushchenko.

He said “the Ukrainian nation considers itself to be an equal member of the democratic world.”

In his speech, the President reminded his audience of Ukraine’s contribution to defeat Nazism, which gave the country a right to become a co-founder of the United Nations Organization.

Yushchenko also told those present about the 1933 famine in Ukraine. He said “the world should learn the truth about all atrocities against mankind.”

“I believe indifference will no longer encourage criminals,” concluded the Head of State.
