Today, at the 17th annual session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, the Berlin Declaration was adopted, an important part of which is the resolution of the Ukrainian delegation "Continuing Violations of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol." The press service of the OSCE reports.
“The Declaration, adopted following an amendment process carried out over several days of committee meetings, calls essential the “commitment to the fundamental principles of international law, human rights and the rule of law enshrined in the UN Charter and the Helsinki Final Act.” It urges renewed efforts to resolve conflicts, with a particular focus on Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” the message says.
As it was reported earlier, on July 7, the OSCE SMM documented the reduction of the number of attacks during the so-called “grain ceasefire "in Donbas. Yet, the “primary cause of the violence has not been eliminated”, as Oleksandr Hug, First Deputy Chairman of OSCE SMM, informed.
According to him, the root cause of the violation is a close location of Armed Forces positions and illegal formations and the deployment of heavy weapon.
