The NATO Parliamentary Assembly on Monday unanimously recognized Russia’s crimes against Ukraine as genocide, striking “a diplomatic victory [for Ukraine with] far-reaching political consequences,” said Yehor Cherniev, the head of Ukraine’s delegation at the assembly in Luxembourg. “This is our diplomatic victory. All of our key wishes regarding the final text of the declaration have been taken into account.”

The declaration includes support for an international tribunal for Russian war crimes, a pledge to help Ukraine achieve victory, a commitment to restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity, the implementation of further sanctions, and an aid program similar to the Marshall Plan to help restore the country’s economy.

In his nightly video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy hailed the declaration from the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. “Things are called what they are: a clear recognition of Russia’s crimes against our country as genocide, a clear condemnation of ruscist ideology,” he said. “This is the right basis for other international organizations as well.”
