OSCE PA adopts urgent resolution on Crimea and Donbas

The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly has adopted an urgent resolution, which was initiated by Ukraine, and strongly condemns the ongoing occupation of the Crimea and certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, as well as the war crimes of the Russian authorities, armed forces and mercenaries in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories. This was reported by head of the permanent delegation of the Verkhovna Rada to the OSCE PA Mykyta Poturayev on Facebook on July 6.

He noted that this happened despite “the intense opposition of the Russian delegation and delegations of countries that are under the influence of Russia”.

The resolution also condemns Russia’s attempts to block the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov contrary to international law.

The document condemns violations of human rights in the occupied Crimea and CADLO, as well as the ongoing dangerous militarization of the occupied Crimea and the illegal Russian passporting of Ukrainian citizens who are forced to stay in CADLO.

“By adopting the resolution of Ukraine, the OSCE PA has once again put forward a demand to Russia – exactly as an initiator and a party to the conflict with Ukraine, exactly as an aggressor state and an occupier country – to immediately liberate the occupied Ukrainian territories and stop daring and large-scale violations of international law”, – Poturayev reported.

He also told that the Russian and Belarusian delegations left the OSCE PA meeting.

In addition, Poturayev noted that member of the Swedish parliament Margareta Zederfeld, who is a dogged critic of Russian neo-imperialist politics in the countries of the former USSR and Russia’s aggression against Georgia and Ukraine, was elected new president of the OSCE PA.

  • The reparations bill for this nazi imperialist regime should increase exponentially until total withdrawal of occupiers and full payment is made. Mass murder, thieving, torture, terror, lies and intimidation must have a cost imposed. It’s surely into multiple hundreds of $billions already. The final reckoning ought to be half of putlerstan’s GDP, with some being distributed to Georgia and Moldova.

    • Just saw this on another media site, they make the rules up as they go along.

      “The Russian delegation rejected the resolution as invalid on procedural grounds, claiming that the vote took place after the head of Moscow’s team, Pyotr Tolstoy, cut his video feed. He argued that all members must be present to secure a two-thirds majority in order for a resolution to be adopted.”

  • “He also told that the Russian and Belarusian delegations left the OSCE PA meeting.”

    No doubt holding their hands over their ears, like little kids do when being told off.

    If the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly were anything like a useful entity, they would have made up this resolution – or a similar one – without Ukraine’s initiative but solely based on mafia land’s behavior and the consequences of their illegal conduct. But, this is not a useful entity … like so many others these days.

    • If they were anything like useful, the OSCE would have removed the terrorist state from it’s organisation. Sadly the OSCE are as spineless and useless as PACE when it comes to dealing with Muscovy.
