Freedom to Vladimir Kara-Murza!

ALDE-PACE joined forces with other political groups to demand the immediate release of the well-known Russian opposition politician and journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza, who has been arbitrarily arrested, detained and prosecuted under trumped-up charges for having denounced the shelling of Ukrainian civilians by the Russian army.

During the session, ALDE raised the situation with Luigi Di Maio, Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy currently presiding the CoE Committee of Ministers, supported the statement issued by Damien Cottier, President of the PACE Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights and bureau member of the ALDE group, and co-signed the inter-group motion for a resolution demanding the release of Vladimir Kara-Murza and asking PACE to closely follow this politically motivated persecution.
