More than 200 legislators from about 30 countries of the NATO Alliance unanimously approved the declaration “Standing with Ukraine”, which “sternly condemned the war started by Russia.”
The declaration says that the NATO PA demands to support Ukraine on the path to Euro-Atlantic integration and increase the supply of heavy weapons, in particular, air defense systems, missile defense systems, anti-ship systems and artillery, as well as strengthen the exchange of intelligence.
The document speaks of the need to scale up destructive sanctions against Russia and gradually abandon the import of coal, gas, oil and uranium from the Russian Federation. We are also talking about the introduction of additional sanctions against Russian oligarchs, officials and their families, as well as against propagandists and state media.
The NATO PA insists on the expulsion of Russian diplomats from NATO countries who are engaged in hostile activities. In particular, this concerns the spread of hatred, disinformation and inciting conflicts.
The document focuses on the need to create a special International Tribunal to investigate, prosecute and bring to justice those responsible for the aggression against Ukraine.
The declaration speaks of the need for a NATO strategic concept, which will clearly define Russia’s revisionism and aggressive actions as the immediate and main threat to Euro-Atlantic security and will provide for the strengthening of the eastern flank of the Alliance. This also applies to the significant strengthening of NATO’s military potential, in particular, Russia’s nuclear deterrence.
As is known, on May 27-30 Vilnius (Republic of Lithuania) hosted a meeting of the spring session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
