The Parliamentary Assembly of the North Atlantic Alliance recognized the Russian Federation as a terrorist country . The delegates called for the creation of a special international tribunal for the crimes of the Russian Federation.

“All 30 NATO countries supported the proposals of our delegation. Such a tribunal will allow to convict not only the direct perpetrators of war crimes, but also the top leadership of the Russian Federation,” said Yehor Chernev , People’s Deputy and Head of the Permanent Delegation of Ukraine to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly .

In addition, the following decisions on Ukraine are specified in the adopted document:

  • increase in arms supplies;
  • development of a plan for Ukraine’s accession to NATO;
  • creation of a mechanism for collecting reparations from Russia in favor of Ukraine.

The People’s Deputy also indicated that the resolution enshrines the principle of the Alliance’s support for Ukraine as long as it is necessary.
