The Council of Europe was disappointed with Ukraine

Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine disappointed in EU approved new rules for the punishment of member countries of the organization for violation of the Charter, reads the statement of the Ukrainian depodesta. Earlier it was reported that on 5 February at a meeting of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (CMCE) adopted a new tripartite response mechanism – the new rules do not allow you to apply penalties for severe violations. Ukraine voted against, the report States. The Ukrainian foreign Ministry believes that the adoption of such measures could be a threat to the future of European organizations and said the situation is “worsening ideological crisis.”

a New mechanism for responding to serious violations aims to prevent a repeat of the situation with the delegation of the Russian Federation in 2014 in the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE). Then the Russian delegation in the PACE of events in Ukraine and the reunification of the Crimea with Russia was deprived of the right to vote, to participate in observation missions and enter into the composition of the governing bodies of the Assembly. The crisis was resolved only in the summer of 2019, when the PACE has restored the rights of the Russian delegation in full. In the beginning of this year the PACE has confirmed powers of the Russian delegation.
