Crimea, Donbas and Nord Stream 2 to be discussed at session of OSCE PA

About 300 MPs from Europe, North America and Asia will take part in the session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, which will be held in Berlin on July 7-11.

Ukraine will be represented by 13 members of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukrinform’s correspondent in Germany reported.

"The agenda will include the following issues: fight against terrorism, climate change, migration and access to education. There will be also debates on the crisis in and around Ukraine, the growth of populism in Europe, protracted conflicts, environmental consequences of wars and restoration of confidence in the OSCE region," the organizing committee of the session informed.

In addition to three main resolutions that should be presented by the committee rapporteurs, a number of additional issues is included into the agenda. The issues refer to human rights in Crimea, the fight against human trafficking, gender-based violence, the creation of an effective system for the protection of migrant children, the security sector governance and reforming. Members of the OSCE PA also intend to discuss a resolution on the tenth anniversary of the war in Georgia.

The delegation of Ukraine on the margins of the session plans to hold two side events on key issues: "The impact of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine on the environment" with the participation of Environment Minister of Ukraine Ostap Semerak and "Nord Stream 2 and the impact on the OSCE member states" with the participation of Chairman of Naftogaz’s Supervisory Board Clare Spottiswoode.

The outcome of the session will be the adoption of the Berlin declaration, which will be presented to the foreign ministers and the rapporteurs of parliaments of 57 OSCE countries.
