OSCE’s Parliamentary Assembly adopted the resolution on “Restoration the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine”, which includes a paragraph on reversing occupation of Crimea and Donbas, according to OSCE’s Parliamentary Assembly website.

The text of an amendment on “Restoration the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine” was introduced by a representative of Ukraine, head of Block Petro Poroshenko fraction Artur Herasymov.

According to this amendment, the PA “urges the Russian Federation to reverse the temporary occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, to withdraw the Russian occupation forces from the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol and to bring them back under the control of the Government of Ukraine”.

It also calls on participating States to strictly refrain from any steps that could lead to direct or indirect recognition of the results of the illegal elections to the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied Crimea.

Finally, it urges the Russian Federation to stop sponsoring terrorist activities in Ukraine through the inflow of fighters, money, and weapons across the Government-uncontrolled segment of the Ukrainian-Russian state border,and revoke its decisions on the recognition of so-called “documents” (passports, driving licenses, birth certificates etc.) issued by illegal entities in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

It should be noted that Russia voted against this resolution.
