NATO Parliamentary Assembly adopts resolution calling on Allied governments and parliaments to support the Crimea Plarform

The NATO Parliamentary Assembly adopted a resolution “Fit For Purpose In The New Strategic Era” following the summit in Madrid. One of its paragraphs urges member governments and parliaments of the North Atlantic Alliance “to support the work of the International Crimea Platform, including its Parliamentary Summit, as a tool to consolidate inter-parliamentary efforts aimed at de-occupation of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.”

This was announced by Yehor Chernev, Head of the Permanent Delegation of Ukraine to the NATO PA: “The adoption of this resolution is an important political step that reflects the mood in Western parliamentary circles, and therefore influences the leadership of countries in decision-making. It is also very pleasing that the Ukrainian position on the establishment of a tribunal, payment of reparations or recognition of Russia as a terrorist state is gradually becoming mainstream at the highest international platforms.”

The resolution will be sent to the governments and parliaments of all NATO member states. At the initiative of the Ukrainian delegation, the document also enshrines the principle of support for Ukraine as long as it is necessary.
