KYIV (QHA) -

After the People's Deputy Nadiya Savchenko was excluded from the delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Ukraine will be represented by Borislav Bereza instead, Anna Gopko said on the air of "112 Ukraine" TV channel.

“Today's vote [on exclusion of Savcheno from the delegation] shows that her place will be taken by Borislav Bereza who was Savchenko’s assistant, continuously went to the PACE over the last 2 years and knows several foreign languages, to represent Ukraine and defend the interests of the state,” Gopko said.
