Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly rejected all the anti-Russian proposals by Kyiv and will abolish all political sanctions against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly rejected all the anti-Russian proposals by Kyiv and will abolish all political sanctions against Russia.

Disproof

Misleading information. With the resolution, the Council of Europe calls for a Summit to "reaffirm European unity and to defend and promote democratic security in Europe". The last summit was organised 12 years ago in 2005. The Council of Europe has two branches – a Parliamentary Assembly and the Committee of Ministers. The assembly comprises delegations from the parliaments of member countries. Because of its aggression against Ukraine, Russia has been suspended from taking part in the assembly since 2014. This is the only sanction referred to in the resolution as one which would potentially be lifted. The Committee of Ministers consists of the Foreign Ministers, or senior diplomats, from the member states. The Council of Europe’s sanctions against Russia did not extend to this committee.
