During the meeting of the Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), a coordinating body of the Assembly adopted a declaration on the common values of Europe and Russia and the need to “move towards” Moscow, according to the head of the permanent delegation of the Verkhovna Rada in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Volodymyr Ariev.
Already the second “Eurobetrayal” in 24 hours (yesterday morning, Ariev openly said that the choice of the people of Britain does not promise anything good to Ukraine, with the visa-free regime with the EU postponed indefinitely) finally upset the Chairman of the Ukrainian delegation.
“A mini-Brexit (ironically), even with the participation of Ukraine, took place today at the PACE Bureau,” Ariev wrote on his official page on social networks.
The coordinating body of PACE issued a Declaration on the common values with Russia and the need to move towards.
I and the British left the meeting as a sign of protest. He also said that it is because of this position of Europe that British citizens voted against the EU. I said that after such dangerous decisions everyone can do what they want and not be considered with the Council of Europe, because the abdication of responsibility is only a matter of time,” he said.
Ariev also noted that he was disappointed in the President of the Assembly, Pedro Agramunt, who calls himself a supporter of Ukraine. Earlier it was reported that PACE discussed the possibility of the Russia delegation returning to the Assembly on a full-time basis. So, the Russian delegation may return to participate in the Assembly of PACE after the elections and update of the State Duma, said the MP from the Netherlands Tiny Kox.
