Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin disappointed with PACE declaration on the need for movement toward Russia. This is stated in a statement on the Foreign Ministry on Facebook.
"I am extremely surprised and disappointed with today's Declaration of the PACE Bureau. Declaring commitment to democracy and dialogue, today this Assembly, the governing body put these values into question.", - Said Pavlo Klimkin.
Klimkin added that Russia "continues to ignore calls of the international community to stop the aggression against Ukraine." The Foreign Minister said that the appeal of the PACE Bureau to lift the sanctions and to resume dialogue with the Russian Federation, "undermines the credibility of the whole Assembly."
