As noted by the representative of the Ukrainian delegation, People's Deputy of Ukraine Lesya Vasylenko, the Resolution was supported by the parliamentarians of 119 countries who were present at the 145th Assembly of the IPU.
"Today, throughout the country, we especially thank our defenders who are fighting for our freedom at the front," said the People's Deputy.
According to the People's Deputy, this is the second time in a row that the Assembly of the IPU condemns the actions of the russian federation. "This is definitely an unprecedented breakthrough for this organization," she added.
"We will continue to work so that the condemnation of the ruscists continues until the aggression and all the shameful crimes of the Putin regime stop," she emphasized.
Another member of the Ukrainian delegation, Alyona Shkrum, reported that there were no votes for this Resolution before the arrival of the Ukrainian delegation, "Because in the IPU, each country has a different number of votes, which depend on the population, and it was necessary to have 2/3 of the votes of the countries of the world!"
According to the people's deputy, the EU countries were very supportive of the Ukrainian delegation, but had doubts that the Resolution would be adopted. "For 120 years of the organization here, no one has been condemned like that, not even Hitler," added Alyona Shkrum.
"But when India voted for us with all their votes (!) we realized that the situation had changed," the MP emphasized.
For reference: the delegation of the Parliament of Ukraine headed by the First Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Korniyenko is on a working visit to Africa. The parliamentary delegation included people's deputies of Ukraine: Olga Rudenko, Artur Gerasymov, Alyona Shkrum, Zhan Beleniuk, Lesya Vasylenko and Oleksiy Zhmerenetskyi.
