PACE may consider a resolution on Russian propagandists' accountability within a year – people's deputy
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) may consider the resolutions initiated by the Ukrainian delegation regarding bringing Russian propagandists to justice and preventing the erasure of cultural identity during wars within a year, reported deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Humanitarian and Information Policy, deputy head of the Servant of the People faction Yevhenia Kravchuk, writes Interfax-Ukraine.
"(PACE may consider the resolutions – If-U) within a year. They have just started. Usually, such work lasts at least a year. I think that as part of this, we will hold hearings in PACE's relevant committees. It is important to get as many deputies from different countries involved as possible, that is, not only so that they vote for the resolution in a year, but also so that they hear the truth. I want to invite Ukrainian journalists to these hearings as well," said the parliamentarian.
Kravchuk explained that in the resolution on propagandists, the Ukrainian delegation intends to stress that what the Russian media are doing is part of the war crimes.
According to her, the resolution on preventing the erasure of cultural identity during wars is not only about the destruction of certain cultural and religious artefacts, but also about cases "when Ukrainian books are being thrown away from libraries and schools, when children are deprived of the opportunity to study in Ukrainian, when children are deported from Ukraine to Russia's territory."
"This affects and is effectively part of the genocide," Kravchuk emphasized.
As IMI reported, on October 13, 2022, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution recognizing the Russian Federation as a terrorist regime.
