Aggression of the Russian Federation against UKRAINE – Statement by President Bazy Malaurie

01/03/2022

The President of the Venice Commission, Ms Claire Bazy Malaurie, made the following statement:

“Following consultation with the Bureau of the Venice Commission, I express the deep shock and dismay generated by the aggression against Ukraine.
Using violence instead of dialogue goes against everything that the Venice Commission stands for; it goes against the core values of the Council of Europe: democracy, the rule of law and, of course, the protection of human rights.

Through its work, the Venice Commission supported Ukraine in the promotion of European principles and values and it will continue to do so.”
