The OSCE parliamentary Assembly adopted the proposed by the Ukrainian delegation to the resolution on “the restoration of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine”.
In the document of the OSCE PA expresses its “full respect for the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders, which include the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol”.
Also in the resolution, the Assembly declares “condemnation of the temporary occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation and a hybrid of the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine in the Donbas.”
In addition, the OSCE PA “urges the Russian Federation to stop sponsoring terrorist activities in Ukraine through a flow of militants, money and weapons through uncontrolled government section of the Ukrainian-Russian state border and to stop all support to illegal armed groups in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine, who are committing terrorist acts in Ukraine.”
The document also contains an appeal to the Russian Federation “to ensure the withdrawal of its armed forces, military equipment and mercenaries from the territory of certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine under the supervision of the OSCE, as well as disarmament of all illegal armed groups”.
Russia strongly opposed the adoption of the resolution.
This resolution will be included in the final Minsk Declaration.
