President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Hendrik Daems has warned member of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE, MP with European Solidarity Party Oleksii Honcharenko, of disciplinary sanctions as the legislator showed colleagues during his speech a national banner penetrated with bullets in the Donbas warzone.

“The strategic priorities of the Assembly were discussed at the PACE session today. I decided to remind that for some reason the draft report contains not a word about territorial integrity and sovereignty of Council of Europe’s member states, about the peaceful resolution of conflicts in Europe. And this is happening at a time when the war is ongoing in Europe, in the east of Ukraine,” he said.

During his address, Honcharenko unfurled the Ukrainian flag with holes in it pierced by Russian bullets.″

This was a flag of a soldier who fought in Donbas. And after that, PACE President Hendrik Daems interrupted my speech and threatened me with disciplinary sanctions,” Honcharenko said in a post.

At the same time, he noted: “Mrs. Merkel during her speech today reminded that PACE is the ‘conscience of Europe.’ For how many Russian silver coins has this conscience been sold?”

Honcharenko posted a video of the incident.

  • The truth hurts, and Russian appeasers can’t take it. Embarrassing for a so called organisation whose goals are supposed to be an international organisation dedicated to upholding human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Which of those 3 items apply to Muscovy?

  • This is from another article, and shows the disgraceful capitulation of this disgusting organisation.

    “Mr. Goncharenko, this is not allowed in the assembly!” – Daems interrupted the speech of the Ukrainian deputy.

    “And what’s the problem? This is our national flag, from the military, who fought for the freedom and independence of our state and died, “Goncharenko denied.

    “This is not allowed in any country,” the chairman insisted.

    The parliamentarians talked for a while at the same time, interrupting each other, Daems twice asked Goncharenko to be silent, turned off his microphone, and then demanded that Goncharenko leave the hall.

    “Today there was a shameful incident when our colleague Oleksiy Honcharenko was turned off the microphone during a speech only for the truth about the war in Donbass and the Ukrainian flag was shot. It is noteworthy that during the speech of the Armenian delegation, who were holding photos to visualize their words, no one turned off their microphones,” Gerashchenko said.
