Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe voted for the resolution on Ukraine with the amendments offered by Ukrainian delegates. People’s Deputy Olexiy Goncharenko said this, 112 Ukraine TV Channel reports.
"PACE voted for the resolutions on Ukraine and made amendments, which replaced the original name of the main resolution on Ukraine from ‘The political consequences of the crisis in Ukraine’ to ‘the political consequences of the Russian aggression in Ukraine’. This is a great achievement; things are called by their names. Today it has been recorded in PACE. Secondly, a paragraph that PACE condemns the illegal Russian Duma elections held in the Crimea, the results useless and does not recognize them is included in the text of the resolution", he said.
People's Deputy Volodymyr Aryev also wrote on the adoption of the resolution on Facebook.
"I am proud of the team work of the delegation to the PACE! As soon as we have reached all the most important amendments in the two resolutions on Ukraine, namely: the extension of sanctions against Russia to restore full sovereignty of Ukraine, the condemnation of the illegal elections in the Crimea, the ban of Majlis, refuse the call to return the Russian Federation to the Assembly, in spite of everything, to release prisoners and much more. Even the title replacement from "the conflict in Ukraine" to "Russia's aggression in Ukraine is a great achievement", he wrote.
"All of the speakers, even supportive to Russia, actually admitted in their statements that it is Russia that brought crisis to Ukraine. Our team will continue to do everything possible to help PACE combat the influence of the Russian lobby. The word of truth will win over the manipulation. Together we will win", Aryev added.
