18 June, 14:43

On 18 June Ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Latvia Olexandr Mischenko met with Vice-Speaker of the Saeima of Latvia, Head of the Latvian delegation to PACE Inese Lībiņa-Egnere.

The Ukrainian Ambassador thanked for strong support of Ukraine within international organizations, including within PACE. The parties discussed the situation on the eve of the June session of PACE in detail and condemned the likely return of credentials of the Russian delegation before it fulfills its commitments, designed in response to the Russian aggression against Ukraine. The Ambassador especially noted the support of Latvia during the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers’ 129th session in Helsinki on 17 May 2019, when Latvia voted against the draft resolution enabling to return Russia’s credentials.

The Vice Speaker stressed that the position of the Republic of Latvia is in full solidarity with Ukraine and unconditional return of Russia without abiding to its obligations will have adverse consequences for this international organization.

The Ukrainian Ambassador familiarized the Vice-Speaker and other members of the Latvian delegation with the situation in Ukraine in the context of the ongoing violation by the occupying country of human rights, in particular the rights of Crimean Tatars in the occupied Crimea, as well as Russian failure to comply with the Minsk agreements with a view of normalization of situation in Donbas. The Ukrainian Ambassador commended the Saeima’s condemnation of deportation of Crimean Tatars and recognition this crime a genocide. As Mr Olexandr Mishchenko remarked, Latvia, as well as Ukraine, are well aware of the crimes of the Soviet totalitarian regime and condemn its manifestations in actions of the current leadership of Kremlin.
