President of Parliamentary Assembly: "Stop the bloodshed in Ukraine"
Anne Brasseur 

Strasbourg, 20.02.2014 – “The immediate priority at this moment in Ukraine is to stop the violence, stop the death toll and stop all forms of retaliation and retribution in order to prevent Ukraine from heading into an abyss,” said Anne Brasseur, the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“The Parliamentary Assembly stands ready to help the people of Ukraine, but the violence must end. I am ready to work with the Verkhovna Rada, which has to live up to its parliamentary responsibility to find solutions to bring an end to the crisis.”

"I support the work of the two PACE monitoring co-rapporteurs for Ukraine, Mailis Reps (Estonia, ALDE) and Marietta de Pourbaix-Lundin (Sweden, EPP/CD), who are currently in Kyiv and are due to meet President Yanukovich today," she concluded.
