OSCE Adopts Ukrainian Resolution Condemning Russia for ‘Unjustified Assault on Ukraine’s Sovereignty’

Among several clauses on the situation in Crimea, the resolution expresses the Assembly’s “deep concern that under conditions of occupation, the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, continues to deteriorate, leading to serious violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

The text also calls on Russia to “immediately release and return to Ukraine detained pilot and member of the Verkhovna Rada, Nadiya Savchenko, filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, Oleksander Kolchenko and all other illegally detained Ukrainian citizens.”

It also urges that perpetrators of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 be held accountable.
