Missing persons during the conflict in Ukraine

Recommendation 2076 (2015)

Parliamentary Assembly
Assembly debate on 25 June 2015 (26th Sitting) (see Doc. 13808, report of the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons, rapporteur: Mr Jim Sheridan). Text adopted by the Assembly on 25 June 2015 (26th Sitting).
1. The Parliamentary Assembly refers to its Resolution 2067 (2015) on missing persons during the conflict in Ukraine.
2. The Assembly stresses that the issue of missing persons in Ukraine is a serious European problem which may hinder the prospects for a peaceful settlement in the region and have negative consequences on the process of reconciliation.
3. The Assembly therefore recommends that the Committee of Ministers identify possible contributions by the Council of Europe to the ongoing process of clarifying the fate and whereabouts of missing persons in connection with the conflict in Ukraine, and offer relevant expertise, especially in the framework of co-operation programmes.
