Situation in Ukraine, CMCE meeting 1210

22 October 2014 Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe

The decision, along with the already traditional requirement to ensure the territorial integrity of Ukraine, includes some important new elements, in particular it:

  • Stresses the special responsibility of the Russian Federation in ensuring the implementation of the Minsk agreements;
  • Formally puts up on the CMCE agenda the issue of numerous rights violations in the Russian-occupied Crimea, the atmosphere of violence and intimidation imposed by the occupying authorities against the Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian communities.
