NATO Parliamentary Assembly urges terrorist state designation for Russia

NATO Parliamentary Assembly has adopted a resolution urging members of the alliance to designate Russia “under the current regime” as a terrorist state.

Resolution 479 was adopted on November 21. Like other NATO Parliamentary Assembly resolutions, it isn’t binding and represents a recommendation to NATO members.

The resolution also calls for the creation of “an international tribunal” that would prosecute Russia for war crimes against Ukraine. The document urges member states to collaborate in making Russia pay “full reparations” to Ukraine, by establishing an “international compensation mechanism.”

A separate Resolution 478 adopted by the assembly urged the alliance “to hold Russian leaders accountable for any war crimes that they have committed,” calling for the creation of a special tribunal for prosecuting the acts of aggression against Ukraine.

Earlier, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a similar resolution for declaring Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism.”

The parliaments of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Czechia have all referred to Russia under its current regime as a terrorist state.
