"The deputies of all PACE political groups, except the united left, have condemned the actions of the Russian special services aiming to assassinate member of the Parliament of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko," he wrote. “The investigation has revealed that the suspects were recruited by the Russian secret service. The two men previously served a jail sentence in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and were released early by the occupation authorities in order to commit this crime. The main motive was to murder a prominent Ukrainian statesman. We urge the governments of the Council of Europe Member States to exert pressure on Russia to make it stop financing and plotting terrorist activities in Ukraine and put an end to human rights violations,” the declaration says.
