Parliamentarians Of Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine Call For Tribunal Over Belarusian Regime

The Hague is getting closer for the Lukashists.

The parliamentarians of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine on Monday in Warsaw condemned Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine, as well as “constant violations of human rights by the Belarusian authorities, as well as their organization of illegal migration”.

This is stated in the final document of the Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Seim of Lithuania, the Seim of Poland and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Delfi reports.

This body was established in 2008 in Kyiv. It is a consultative inter-parliamentary institution that discusses issues and projects corresponding to common interests.

The last session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Seimas of Lithuania, the Seimas of Poland and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine was held on Monday, December 6 in Warsaw.

First of all, the parliamentarians of these three states recognized Ukraine as a victim of aggression, which “has the right to defend its territorial integrity, national independence and the life, health, safety and property of its citizens by all available means, including the military.”

Parliamentarians from Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine have appealed to the European Union (EU), NATO and other allies to take all possible preliminary measures aimed at preventing any further Russian aggression against Ukraine.

The situation in Belarus is reflected in some issues in the final document. The PA of the three countries called on the Belarusian authorities to immediately stop escalating the situation on the border with Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, to stop the flows of illegal migration to neighboring states through its territory, and to accept humanitarian aid. The parliamentarians also called “to immediately release and rehabilitate all illegally arrested or convicted political prisoners”.

Addressing the international community, the PA of the Seimas of Lithuania, the Seimas of Poland and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine called on “to step up efforts to effectively support civil society and democratic forces in Belarus, as well as to pursue a single and consistent policy towards Belarus.”

The document also once again proposes to initiate an international judicial process providing for universal jurisdiction, which allows to personally convict Aliaksandr Lukashenka and representatives of his regime for large-scale crimes against Belarusians.
