The Secretary General of the Council of Europe, thorbjørn Jagland, in contrast to the decisions of the Committee of Ministers and PACE resolutions, again publicly declared the need to return to Russia in PACE “without any preconditions”. This writes in his Facebook Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko, is evidence of the “degradation” of euroinstitut.
“It (Jagland, – ed.) worried that otherwise, Europe will remain without Russia, and Russia will be the territory of lawlessness. The fact that Russia stole part of the Ukraine and Georgia, does not bother him. The fact that Russia violated human rights and created the territory of lawlessness in the occupied regions – not too worried about the COE Secretary General. What if Europe allows Russia to violate basic europeancity and human rights, then it will be a different, degraded Europe, also did not occur to the Secretary General of the COE”, she said.
First Vice-speaker of Parliament statement called Jagland “Amateur”, which is contrary to the decisions of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and PACE resolutions
According to Gerashchenko, “we live in a time a certain degradation” of the European institutions and their external weakening the aggressor – the same Russia. “You can take it and go with the flow, it is possible to say and try to resist”, she said.
