The Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE PA) has adopted a resolution condemning Russia’s continued occupation of Crimea and certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (CADLR) and calling on the Russian Federation to withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory.

Mykyta Poturayev, head of the delegation of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to the OSCE PA, wrote about this on his Facebook page on July 6, Ukrinform reports.

“Despite the fierce resistance of the Russian delegation and delegations of countries that are under Russian influence, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly has just adopted an urgent resolution, initiated by Ukraine, and strongly condemns the continued occupation of Crimea and certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (CADLR), and the war crimes of the Russian authorities, armed forces and mercenaries in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories,” he said.

The resolution also condemns Russia’s attempts to block the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, contrary to international law.
