The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has passed a resolution condemning Russia for its annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.
PACE voted for the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from Crimea in connection with the denunciation of the Black Sea Fleet agreements, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
"In connection with the denunciation by the Russian Federation of the agreements, concluded with Ukraine in 1997, on the Black Sea Fleet deployment in the Crimea, the Assembly calls on Russia immediately to withdraw its troops from the Crimea," the amendment reads.
Following the vote, Aleksei Pushkov, the head of the Russian delegation to PACE, condemned the resolution, adding that Moscow will not "urgently revise its foreign policy and principles."
