The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has adopted a resolution supporting Ukraine and recognizing the Russian regime as terrorist.
Oleksiy Honcharenko, a member of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada parliament, reported this on Telegram messenger on Oct. 13. He said that 99 delegates had voted for the adoption of the resolution and one abstained, which he said was a historic result.
Honcharenko also noted several important facts about the resolution:
The Russian regime is recognized as a terrorist one. This is a strong signal on a global scale and it is another step toward recognizing Russia as a sponsor of terrorism.
For the first time in history, the Council of Europe declared that weapons should be supplied to a country. Specifically, air defense systems for the protection of the civilians were mentioned.
It is noted that Russia’s presence in the UN Security Council is illegal.
The resolution supports the establishment of an international tribunal on Russian war crimes in Ukraine as soon as possible.
