The NATO Parliamentary Assembly adopted a resolution recognizing Russia as a terrorist state and calling for the creation of a special international tribunal.
About This was reported by People’s Deputy from the Servant of the People faction, head of the Permanent Delegation of Ukraine to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Yehor Chernev in Facebook.
“The NATO Parliamentary Assembly called for the creation of a special international tribunal regarding Russia’s aggression and recognized it as a terrorist state. All 30 NATO countries supported the proposals of our delegation,” he writes.
Such a court will allow to convict not only the direct perpetrators of war crimes, but also the top leadership of the Russian Federation, said the People’s Deputy.
Chernev added that, in addition, other wishes were taken into account in the resolution of Ukraine:
- increase in arms supplies to Ukraine;
- development of specific steps regarding Ukraine’s accession to NATO;
- creation of a mechanism for collecting reparations from the Russian Federation for damage caused to Ukraine.
The resolution also established the principle that NATO will support Ukraine as long as necessary.
“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 gratifying that the Ukrainian position, such as the creation of a tribunal, the payment of reparations or the recognition of Russia as a terrorist state, is gradually becoming mainstream at the highest international platforms“, the People’s Deputy writes.
On October 13, the PACE adopted a resolution supporting Ukraine and recognizing the Russian regime as terrorist.
On November 14, the UN General Assembly adopted a draft resolution on Russia’s payment of compensation to Ukraine for the damage caused. 94 countries voted for the resolution, 14 against, 73 abstained.
