The NATO Parliamentary Assembly recognized Russia’s crimes against Ukraine as genocide and the Russian terrorist regime as fascist. The announcement was made on the PA website.
According to Yegor Chernev, chairman of Ukraine’s permanent delegation to the NATO PA, the declaration was adopted unanimously.
"At the PA session in Luxembourg, we obtained the adoption of an extremely strong declaration that will have far-reaching political consequences," he commented.
The NATO PA also called on the governments of its member states to reconfirm openly that Ukraine would become a member of the Alliance at the next scheduled NATO summit in Vilnius and to agree on the next significant steps towards Ukraine’s NATO membership.
"It includes support for the international tribunal, assistance for Ukraine until the victory and after it, condemnation of the Russian fascist ideology, restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sanctions, reparations, the Marshall plan, and much more," Chernev wrote.
He said that Ukraine struggled for a long time to ensure such unequivocal and clear wording and spent hundreds of hours in negotiations and consultations.
