PACE did not support the amendment to the draft of “Russian resolution” on the need to oblige each member of Russia’s delegation to recognize that Crimea belongs to Ukraine publicly. Ukrainian MP Oleg Lyashko proposed this, as Ukrinform reported.
The amendment offered to restore the rights of the Russian delegation if each member publicly states that he/she respects fundamental values of the Council of Europe and recognizes Crimea as the territory of Ukraine.
It happened during the voting for amendments to the resolution on changes of PACE regulation.
Lyashko noted that “Russia’s representative” already seats in Assembly’s podium meaning the President of PACE Liliane Maury Pasquier.
The MP also stated that he would not visit the Parliamentary Assembly anymore.
He is convinced that “the children of the delegators who supported Russia will be ashamed”.
As it was reported, the summer session in PACE kicked off on June 24.
Germany and France initiated the lifting of restrictions from Russia in PACE.
