PACE has transformed from a parliamentary to a propagandistic assembly that deals with Russophobia at all levels. And the accusations that we have just heard, are the same primitive Russophobic stamps: Donbass, Ukraine.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), declaring that Russia’s annexation of Crimea was “in clear contradiction with the Statute of the Council of Europe” and the commitments Russia made when it joined the organisation in 1996, decided to suspend the voting rights of the Russian delegation, as well as its right to be represented in the Assembly’s leading bodies, and its right to participate in election observation missions, in April 2014. In a resolution adopted by 145 votes in favour, 21 against and 22 abstentions, after a three-hour debate, the Assembly said the military occupation of Ukrainian territory, threat of military force, recognition of the illegal so-called referendum and annexation of Crimea “constitute, beyond any doubt, a grave violation of international law”. assembly.coe.int/nw/xml/News/News-View-EN.asp?newsid=4982&cat=8,
