A Ukrainian parliamentary delegation to PACE will not attend the upcoming session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Foreign Policy and Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Bohdan Yaremenko posted this on his Facebook page.
“Having no other opportunity to respond to violations by this organization of its own principles and faced with blatant disregard of its interests, Ukraine will refrain from sending its delegation to the next PACE session,” he wrote.
According to him, the MPs will focus on preparing the Ukrainian delegation and holding consultations with other member states of the Council of Europe in order to develop a plan to restore confidence in PACE.
“This approach was supported by the overwhelming majority of factions of the Ukrainian parliament,” Yaremenko noted.
