PACE may investigate far-right extremism in Ukraine
It is related to the wave of attacks by national radicals on civilians that swept through Ukraine
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe may send an additional mission to Ukraine to investigate far-right extremism after the Covid-19 pandemic is over. This was stated by an MP of Austria’s Social Democratic Party, a member of the PACE, Professor Stefan Schennach.
In his opinion, a special report should be made on the wave of attacks by far rights on civilians that swept through Ukraine.
“I think when we return to consistent work, we will send an additional mission to Ukraine specifically to investigate this far-right extremism. I have made a corresponding position to the monitoring committee and the bureau (the Bureau of Council of Europe – 112 International). I think it is time to make a special report on this,” Schennach stated.
As we reported earlier, on May 23, far rights attacked the office of the Opposition Platform – For Life political party.
On June 25, two unidentified persons attacked the coordinator of the local branch of Party of Shariy, Mykyta Rozhenko, in Kharkiv. He was hit on the head with baseball bats.
Later, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, a combat grenade was used against political opponents. An unknown man in a mask threw it into an open window of the Poltava office of the Opposition Platform – For Life party.
