NATO Parliamentary Assembly recognizes Russia as a terrorist state

16:38 21 November Kyiv, Ukraine

The NATO Parliamentary Assembly demanded the creation of a special International Tribunal to punish Russian criminals and recognized the Russian Federation as a terrorist state.

This was announced by the head of the Permanent Delegation of Ukraine to the NATO PA Yegor Chernev.
"All 30 NATO countries supported the proposals of our delegation. Such a tribunal will allow us to convict not only the direct perpetrators of war crimes, but also the top leadership of the Russian Federation. The resolution will be sent to the governments and parliaments of all NATO member countries," Chernev said.
According to Chernev, the resolution contains a number of important decisions for Ukraine: an increase in arms supplies to Ukraine; development of specific steps for Ukraine's accession to NATO; creation of a mechanism for collecting reparations from the Russian Federation for the damage caused to Ukraine.

Chernev also stressed that the resolution enshrines the principle that NATO will support Ukraine for as long as it takes.
"The adoption of this resolution is an important political step that reflects the mood in Western parliamentary circles, and therefore affects the leadership of countries in decision-making," the head of the permanent delegation of Ukraine to the NATO PA explained.
Chernev notes that the Ukrainian position regarding the creation of a tribunal, the payment of reparations and the recognition of Russia as a terrorist state is gradually gaining support at the highest international platforms.
"For crimes against humanity, war crimes with no statute of limitations and for the crime of aggression, punishment will be inevitable. We will definitely achieve this," Chernev assures.
