The NATO Parliamentary Assembly has passed a resolution that designates the Russian aggression against Ukraine to be genocide, a Ukrainian MP reported on Facebook on May 22.
“The NATO Parliamentary Assembly has recognized Russia’s crimes against Ukraine as genocide…,” said Yegor Chernev from the Servant of the People faction, who heads the Permanent Delegation of Ukraine to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
The lawmaker added that the assembly had called on the governments of its members states to openly announce at the summit in Vilnius, Lithuania, that Ukraine would become a NATO member and agree on the next concrete steps for Ukraine’s accession to NATO.
Also, according to Chernev, the adopted document includes “support for the international tribunal, assistance to Ukraine before and after victory, … restoration of territorial integrity, sanctions, reparations, the Marshall Plan, etc.”
“The foundation for the NATO summit in Vilnius has been laid,” the MP said.
“Parliamentarians of the alliance states have expressed their position. Now it’s up to the governments.”
The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, passed a resolution on May 2 that designates Russia’s political regime as “Rashist” (Russian fascist) and condemns its ideological principles and social practices.
