The delegation of Ukraine took advantage of the rules of the Assembly to block the amendment.
The Ukrainian delegation and several Pro-Ukrainian deputies in PACE have used the rules of the Assembly and blocked the amendment should conduct by-elections to the Verkhovna Rada in non-government controlled areas of Donbas.
Before that, it was reported that the PACE monitoring Committee supported the amendment on elections in the Donbass. This rule was supported by an overwhelming majority in the relevant Committee and that there was a significant probability of support in the hall.
However, the delegation of Ukraine and several Pro-Ukrainian deputies took advantage of the fact that the amendment is “oral” and her magnenat from consideration if a consideration at least ten deputies would be against it.
After this proposal was automatically rejected.
Later, the MP and PACE Vice-President Georgy Logvynsky said that the Assembly supported the draft resolution on “the Functioning of democratic institutions in Ukraine”.
