Also during the meeting of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly General Committee on Political Issues and Security, the resolution on the militarization of the temporarily occupied Crimea and Sevastopol, the Black and Azov Seas by the Russian Federation, proposed by the Ukrainian delegation, was approved. On the 8th of July, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly adopted the Luxembourg Declaration, which contains a Ukrainian resolution condemning the annexation of Crimea and the militarization of the occupied water areas of Sevastopol, Crimea, the Black and Azov Seas.
