Ukraine Hands in 2020 Emissions Report Despite War

–65% drop in GHG since 1990; 12% in 2020 vs 2019

Ukraine’s UNFCCC report (see below):

As a result of the occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea and armed aggression by the Russian Federation, since 2014 slightly over 7 % of the territory of Ukraine temporarily remains out of control of the Government of Ukraine.

This fact complicates, and sometimes makes impossible, the process of data collecting and reporting, needed for the annual National GHG Inventory.

The temporary occupation by the Russian Federation territory of Ukraine is steadfastly con- demned by international community, territorial changes by force are not recognized, sanctions remain in place till full compliance of the RF with international law.

In particular, the UN General Assembly resolution 68/262 of March 27, 2014 confirmed the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine and the absence of any legal basis to change the status of the Autono- mous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

The same stance was confirmed by the UN General Assembly resolution 71/205 “Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Ukraine)” of December 19, 2016, which unambiguously defines Russia as an occupying power.
