Ukrainian delegation to PACE calls on Zelensky to hold consultations

Deputy member of the Permanent Delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), MP Boryslav Bereza has called on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to make a public statement regarding the delegation’s unchanged course.

He said this from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Our partners who left the last session with us expect President Zelensky to make an official public statement that the future course of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE will remain unchanged. In such case, they are ready to support us in the future, as well as to unite with us to develop a format of cooperation with the Parliamentary Assembly," the politician noted.

According to MP Bereza, the Ukrainian delegation needs to hold consultations with the president and representatives of the Foreign Ministry and the Parliament, and develops a format of further cooperation with PACE.

As Ukrinform reported, on June 25, the PACE adopted a resolution envisaging Russia's unconditional return to the Assembly. The document amends the PACE rules and excludes the possibility of depriving any delegation of voting rights even if the credentials of members of the delegation are appealed or revised. They also cannot be deprived of the right to speak and to have representation in the assembly and its structures.

The Ukrainian delegation suspended its work in the summer session as a sign of protest.
