The parliamentary assembly of the council of Europe has recognized that Russia is the aggressor. The decision was adopted almost unanimously — 216 voted for exclusion from PACE, 3 abstained, not a single vote against.
“We are really upset that today we have to ask for the expulsion of a member of the organization who has been with us for 25 years. But if you cross red lines, you have no place in this organization. I am very glad that during these two days our Assembly was not an arena of contradictions, but an agora and the unanimous vote showed this”, PACE president Tiny Kox.
PACE also unanimously recognized Transnistria as a zone of Russian occupation.
