On 10 April 2014, PACE voted to suspend the Russian delegation’s voting rights; these sanctions were prolonged till January 2016. On 4 June 2014, the Russian parliamentary delegation suspended its cooperation with PACE, since its delegates were deprived of voting rights in the aftermath of the Ukrainian conflict. In January 2016, the Russian parliament decided not to submit the credentials of its parliamentary delegation for ratification by PACE.

 

 

Dear readers! We need your help. COVID-19 has hit independent media outlets hard, but even more so in Ukraine, where most outlets are controlled by oligarchs.

And even worse, this comes at a time of troubling government tendencies and amid a pro-Russian resurgence in Ukraine.  Help keep us online and reporting on the most important of Ukrainian issues for you in these troubling times, bringing the voices of civic society to the forefront of the information war. Our articles are free for everyone to use but we depend on our readers to keep going.  We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget and have no political or state affiliation.
