The Polish Senate, the upper house of the country’s parliament, on Oct. 26passed a resolution declaring the Russian government to be a terrorist regime, the Senate’s press service reported on Twitter.
The document was unanimously backed by all 85 senators.
In particular, the resolution states that Russia’s goal is to “wipe a sovereign country off the map and destroy the Ukrainian people,” while Ukraine today is “the most important place protecting democracy and freedom.”
The senators reiterated that Russian invaders are continuing to terrorize peaceful Ukrainians and bomb civilian objects.
“Bandits in Russian uniforms torture and kill prisoners of war and civilians in the occupied territories,” the document reads.
“They kidnap Ukrainian children... They deport, resettle and send Ukrainian citizens to the periphery of Russia... Vladimir Putin and his apparatus of violence have returned to the brutal practices of the Stalinistand Nazi regimes. That is why Russia must be defeated and deprived of the opportunity to endanger its neighbors.”
The Senate also condemned Russian aggression and called on all countries that support peace, democracy and human rights to recognize the Russian regime as terrorist one.
In addition, the senators thanked the Polish people, the government, local administrations, non-government organizations, and entrepreneurs for helping Ukrainians after the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on Oct. 13 passed a resolution supporting Ukraine and declaring the Russian regime to be a terrorist one.
