12:20 16 November Kyiv, Ukraine

The Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic (lower house of parliament) adopted a resolution in which the Russian regime is recognized as a terrorist.

129 of the 156 deputies present voted in favor, while 14 deputies from the opposition movement Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) voted against.

The resolution condemns the attack of the Russian Federation on Ukraine, Russian strikes on energy infrastructure facilities, and also does not recognize the results of the so-called "referenda", on the basis of which the Russian Federation annexed the occupied territories.

According to the document, the actions of the Russian Federation lead to "wide-ranging restrictions or interruptions in the supply of electricity, water or heat, endangering the civilian population."

Members of the Czech parliament also supported the initiative to create a special tribunal to prosecute crimes of aggression, and, under the leadership of the International Criminal Court, to investigate and punish those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Russia.
