OSCE Parliamentary Assembly ruled to cancel its decision on the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. The respective draft resolution was passed at the Sunday session of the Assembly. TASS reported that, referring to the decision of the OSCE PA Committee for Politics and Security.
The document urges Russia to "cancel its illegal decision to recognize the so-called independence of the occupied territories of Georgia" and stop violating human rights and political persecutions, as well as the assumed ethnic discrimination against the residents of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Earlier, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly passed the resolution about the militarization of Crimea, Sevastopol, Black and Azov Seas. The document was created and promoted by Ukrainian MP Artur Herasymov. In it, the Committee urged Russia to take away its troops from Ukraine.
The document states that the OSCE PA once again confirms its full respect of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders that include Crimea, Sevastopol, and naval areas. The OSCE PA condemned the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia, urging Moscow to return it to Ukraine.
