DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES 
 
REF: STATE 169257 
 
Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for 
reasons 1.4(b,d) 
 
1. (U) On October 16 we delivered reftel demarche regarding 
the upcoming UNGA vote on the Declaration on the Rights of 
Indigenous Peoples to Andriy Beshta of the MFA UN 
Directorate.  Neither Australia nor New Zealand have an 
embassy in Kyiv. 
 
2. (C) While making our points, poloff noted that the 
Declaration could be interpreted to apply to Ukraine's Tatar 
population and thereby exacerbate tensions between Tatars and 
ethnic Russians in Crimea.  Mr. Beshta agreed with this 
assessment and informed Poloff that Ukraine abstained when 
the Declaration came to a vote in the UN Human Rights Council 
and expected to do the same if the matter comes before the 
UNGA.
