ALDE-PACE calls to refrain from military action in Ukraine

3.03.2013 The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe calls on the Russian authorities not to conduct any action in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine which could threaten territorial integrity of Ukraine and undermine regional peace and stability. Local population cannot and must not become hostages of a geopolitical play. On the other hand, the Ukrainian authorities would gain from clearly showing that they are capable of assuring due protection to all residents, and that national minorities have nothing to fear from the political change in the country.

Any calls or threats of launching a military intervention are unacceptable and will provoke strong international reaction in line with the international law. We recall that the members of the Council of Europe have an obligation to rely on diplomacy in the spirit of dialogue and refrain from military action in its relations with neighbours.

ALDE-PACE strongly supports the statement and the mission of the Monitoring committee of PACE regarding the situation in Ukraine. Later this week, the political crisis in Ukraine, as well as possible responses to the grave instability in the region, will be discussed at PACE meetings in Paris. We will be closely following the situation and will demand from our organisation an adequate reply.

The Council of Europe can and should continue to provide legal expertise to amend the re-enacted 2004 Constitution, to adopt a new unified electoral code as well as to draft a new law on languages that is fully in line with requirements of the Framework Convention and Charter on Minority Languages. ALDE-PACE calls for an urgent debate during the April part-session of the Assembly in order to discuss the situation in Ukraine as well as the worrying role the Russian Federation has taken in the conflict.
