Quote: "On the opening day of the summer session in Bucharest, the OSCE PA adopted a resolution condemning Russia's 10-year armed aggression against Ukraine, recognising 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."


Details: Frolov emphasised that the resolution defines the decolonisation of the Russian Federation as "a necessary precondition for the establishment of lasting peace".

Key points of the resolution:

  • A call to all 53 OSCE member states to make efforts to achieve the liberation of Crimea and all occupied Ukrainian territories by supporting the Peace Formula and the Crimean Platform.
  • OSCE states call for the establishment of 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 Russian troops.
  • Emphasis on the urgent launch of a mechanism for the use of frozen Russian assets for the benefit of Ukraine and an invitation to OSCE countries to join the Agreement on the Register of Damage Caused by the Aggression of the Russian Federation Against Ukraine.
  • The recognition of the 2024 presidential elections in the Russian Federation as fraudulent and undermining the legitimacy of the entire electoral system of the Russian Federation.
  • Support for the creation of the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children, as well as efforts to ensure the release of Ukrainian prisoners of war and civilians.
  • A call for a ban on imports of Russian liquefied natural gas to the European Union, re-exports, and transit through EU ports.
