SUBJECT: UKRAINE: UNGA THIRD COMMITTEE RESOLUTIONS

C. KYIV 2822 AND PREVIOUS
D. STATE 145641

1. (U) Ref A relayed information passed by Ukraine's UN
mission that Ukraine will vote in favor of the four
country-specific resolutions in the UNGA Third Committee and
against any no-action motion. In ref C, we reported on
delivery of U.S. points regarding the draft resolution "On
Condemning the Use of Rape as an Instrument of State Policy."

2. (U) With respect to the remaining issues in ref D, we note
that Ukraine generally supports the EU position in
international fora. Thus, Ukraine is likely to vote with the
EU against the OIC resolution on "defamation of religion" and
in support of the EU resolution calling for a moratorium on
the death penalty. Given Ukraine's recent history and
success in holding free and fair elections, we also believe
that Ukraine will support the U.S.-sponsored resolution on
"Strengthening the Role of the United Nations in Enhancing
the Effectiveness of the Principle of Periodic and Genuine
Elections and the Promotion of Democratization."
