PACE to vote for resolution on Ukraine today

17:05, 25 January 2017

Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe won’t vote for the Ukrainian resolution today.

24 amendments to the document are registered at the moment. Pro-Russian PACE delegates want to delete wording for Russian aggression in the East of Ukraine from the document and to replace it with “civil war”.

Ukrainian delegation wants offers to recognize Russia’s aggressive actions to be the major “risk of destabilization and security” instead.

Ukrainian delegates to PACE plan to discuss the issue of Ukraine regaining control over its border.
