Russia must be expelled from the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, as well as from the UN Security Council because of its aggression in Ukraine. Now we need to find ways to do this, since Russian aggression may be repeated in the future.
“I firmly support the words of President Volodymyr Zelensky that it is unclear why the aggressor is still in the organization that protects peace and security, that is, in the OSCE,” he said.
Grodzky added that the call of the Ukrainian delegates to the OSCE PA in Warsaw to suspend the membership of the delegation of the Russian Federation as an aggressor state is “understandable”. At the same time, he noted that excluding Russia from the OSCE PA at this stage “is not an easy task.”
Marshal of the Senate noted that he spoke on this topic with the President of the OSCE PA Margareta Cederfelt.
“According to the current regulations, it is not so easy, because there must be a consensus of votes minus one, that is, all must be “for” and no more than one “against”. And in our country, two countries would be against – Russia and Belarus. However, the method How to throw Russia out of the OSCE must be found, because the organization, which has security and cooperation in Europe in its name, cannot tolerate among its members a country that attacks a free, civilized country,” explained the speaker of the upper house of the Polish parliament.
Grodzky also noted that it is even more difficult to exclude Russia from the UN Security Council than from the OSCE.
“But the world must let Russia understand that aggression against an independent and free country will be severely punished and will lead to Russia’s complete isolation. Therefore, Russia’s exclusion from the UN Security Council would be an appropriate step, because otherwise history will repeat itself in 20 years,” concluded the Polish Marshal Senate.
