Permanent Representative of Ukraine at the Council of Europe Dmytro Kuleba is recalled for the consultations due to the decision of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to return Russia, as Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin reported on Facebook.

“In the rest, the Council of Europe lost our trust and it will be very difficult to restore it. From the leader of the efforts for the defense of human rights, the organization turned into a simple manager, even not a great one. So, we recall our ambassador to CoE for the consultations,” Klimkin wrote.

Klimkin also thanked the Ukrainian delegation in PACE for work, noting that stop of the participation in the PACE is quite a logical step.

Earlier it was reported that the delegations of Ukraine and Georgia launched a complaints procedure in PACE over Russia’s return to the organization.

As it was reported, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution which changes the sanctions regime and allows Russia to return to work in the organization without limitations to the right to vote.
