Ukrainian delegation to the PACE is outraged with the report of  ecretary General of Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland regarding the violations of human rights, which was not referred to the situation in the occupied Crimea and Donbas. This was announced on Facebook by the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Irina Gerashchenko.

Ukrainian delegation also wasn't satisfied with the answer to their questions about the report.

"In our opinion, Yangland gave a terrible and cynical response, he said that the alleged information on the state of human rights in the occupied Crimea and Donbas is not included in the annual report on human rights, because the report includes information received from the PACE special monitoring. And since no mission last year was allowed to Crimea and Donbas, then there is no information in the report! It turns out that if the Russian Federation closed  the occupied territories from the world - it is now the Council of Europe will keep silent about the abuse of Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars ", - said Gerashchenko.
