Mailis Reps and Marietta de Pourbaix-Lundin, co-rapporteurs for the monitoring of Ukraine by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) met in prison former Ukrainian Minister of the Interior Yuriy Lutsenko, PACE press office reported.

Noting the concerns about his health, the co-rapporteurs called on the authorities to provide all necessary expertise to properly diagnose and treat his illness.

The co-rapporteurs expressed their will to continue searching for a solution for the former government members who have been detained and whose trials have been a matter of great concern for the Parliamentary Assembly, as expressed in Resolution 1862 (2012) on “the functioning of democratic institutions in Ukraine”, passed in January.

Following the visit to Ukraine the co-rapporteurs told a press conference the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) no longer considers the possibility of imposing sanctions against Ukraine.

"There is some disagreement as to which sanctions could be imposed. Nothing has currently been done. It is proposed to deprive [Ukraine] of the right of vote or membership. But we have not reached this stage," PACE Monitoring Committee co-rapporteur on Ukraine Marietta de Pourbaix-Lundin said at a press conference at UKRINFORM.

Another PACE co-rapporteur, Mailis Reps, said that the introduction of sanctions was not in the interests of Ukraine and the PACE. At the same time, she noted that talks on the introduction of sanctions would be appropriate if the Ukrainian side does not agree to hold an active dialogue.
PACE Monitoring Committee delegation will return to Ukraine in May.
