OSCE Parliamentary Assembly recognizes Russia’s actions as genocide against the Ukrainian people

The OSCE Parliamentary Assembly has adopted a resolution recognizing Russia’s actions as genocide against the Ukrainian people and the need to decolonize Russia.

Pavlo Frolov, a member of the Ukrainian parliamentary delegation, wrote about the decision on his social account.

“On the opening day of the summer session in Bucharest, the OSCE PA adopted a resolution condemning the 10-year armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, which recognized the actions of the military and political leadership of the Russian Federation and its armed forces during the full-scale invasion as genocide of the Ukrainian people,” Frolov wrote.

He emphasized that the resolution defines the decolonization of the Russian Federation as “a necessary precondition for the establishment of a lasting peace.”

The resolution of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly highlights several key points.

  • Call on all 53 OSCE participating states to make efforts to de-occupy Crimea and all occupied territories of Ukraine by supporting the Peace Formula and the Crimean Platform;
  • call on the OSCE states to establish a Special Tribunal to prosecute the Russian Federation for crimes committed during the aggressive war against Ukraine and to conduct international and national investigations into mass atrocities, murders, torture, and rape committed by the Russian army;
  • emphasizes the need to quickly launch a mechanism for the use of frozen Russian assets in favor of Ukraine and invites OSCE countries to join the Agreement on the International Register of Damage Caused to Ukraine by the Russian aggression;
  • recognize the 2024 presidential elections in the Russian Federation as fraudulent and undermine the legitimacy of the entire electoral system of the Russian Federation;
  • support the establishment of the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children, and ensure the release of Ukrainian prisoners of war and civilians;
  • call for a ban on imports of Russian liquefied natural gas to the European Union, re-exports, and transit through EU ports.

Latest Russian missile attacks on Vilnyansk kills civilians including two kids

Meanwhile, Ukraine continues to record new Russian crimes against Ukrainian civilians. On Saturday evening, June 29, Russian invading troops launched a missile attack on the town of Vilnyansk in the Zaporizhzhia region. The missile hit a residential building in the city center. The Russian attack killed residents of the building, including two children.

Rescuers eliminated the consequences of a Russian missile attack on the city of Volnyansk, Zaporizhzhia region, and completed search and rescue operations on Sunday morning. Seven people were killed, including 2 children, and 31 people were injured, including 8 children.

Ukrainian cities near the front line are not protected enough, as Ukraine needs more air defense capabilities to repel Russian missile attacks.
