“We have called on the international community to conduct investigations at the international and national levels into mass atrocities, murders, torture, and rape committed by the Russian army and to hold the perpetrators accountable, including through the establishment of a Special Tribunal for crimes of aggression against Ukraine,” wrote parliamentary delegation member Pavlo Frolov.

The resolution contains a total of 70 points, including support for the creation of an International Coalition for the return of Ukrainian children, calls for the release of Ukrainian prisoners of war, civilians, and children, underscores the need for the rapid launch of a mechanism for using frozen Russian assets for of Ukraine, proposes that OSCE countries join the Agreement on the International Register of Damages caused to Ukraine by Russian aggression, recognizes the 2024 presidential elections in Russia as rigged and undermining the legitimacy of the entire Russian electoral system, and calls for a ban on the import of Russian liquefied natural gas into the European Union, re-export, and transit through EU ports.
