The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has confirmed authorities of the Russia’s delegation.

This follows from a report by the Ukrainian delegation, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The hall declined all the amendments of the Ukrainian delegation.

At the same time, the PACE adopted by absolute majority, an amendment submitted by the Committee initiated by the Ukrainian delegation stating that confirmation of the authorities of the RF’s delegation is not the acknowledgement of its right to annexation or occupation of a territory, in particular, the PACE does not recognize the annexation of Crimea.

The resolution adopted also calls on Russia to introduce amendments recommended by the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission) to its Constitution as for implementation of decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and release Russian oppositionist, Alexey Navalny.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in June 2019, the PACE resumed Russia’s rights in the Assembly.

In January 2020, the PACE also approved the authorities of the Russian delegation.
