The declaration of the PACE Bureau calling to lift sanctions and resume dialogue with the Russian Federation "undermines credibility of the whole Assembly."
This was stated by Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, Government portal reports.
"Amid present conditions, the declaration of the PACE Bureau calling to lift sanctions and resume dialogue with the Russian Federation undermines credibility of the whole Assembly," Klimkin said.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister added that Russia "continues to openly ignore the calls of the international community to stop the aggression against Ukraine."
"Further concessions to the aggressor and occupier will be the worst signal to the international community and will mean that Russia, like any other state, can now freely violate the fundamental principles of the Council of Europe with impunity," Klimkin said.
