The Assembly condemns the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by Russia, as "a violation of international law", the adopted document states.
PACE reiterated its urge to Russia to annul the decision on the republics' recognition, but voted against the amendment, recommending considering an issue of temporary deprivation of Russian and Georgian delegations of their votes in April 2009 in case some demands remain not implemented. According to this amendment, the vote deprivation could have been applied to the Russian delegation in case Russia continued non-implementation of the demands, stated in the Resolution adopted in October, including the demands to annul the decisions on South Ossetia and Abkhazia recognition and ensuring safe return of the internally displaced persons.
