The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has refused to hold debates on Crimea and Donbas during the current session as MP from Servant of the People faction Yelyzaveta Yasko stated at Ukraine 24 TV channel.
“Firstly, this session is not critical for Ukraine because monumental issues will not be considered in general. The topic of debates on the situation in Crimea was not supported at the Bureau, the executive body of the PACE but such topics as Afghanistan and migration were supported,” Yasko said.
According to her, the PACE will not hold serious voting at this meeting.
However, Yasko is sure that the Ukrainian delegation should hold works on Crimea and Donbas issues at the PACE sidelines: convince, tell about things that happen there.
The autumn PACE session has started on September 27 and it will last until September 30. The main topics of this gathering are environment, climate, and migration.
As we reported, on Monday, September 20, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky flew out to the United States. He took part in the UN General Assembly. During his speech at the UNGA, Zelensky urged the world leaders to join the Crimean Platform.
