"One of the French parliamentarians who went to Crimea, two days ago she was approached by Ukrainian parliamentarians together with camera in order to give her a notification of the prosecutor general that she violated general law. That is not acceptable for me either, because you can't in this premises, without notifying, without asking for a formal meeting, just address that, fix it with camera and then put it online," Anne Brasseur said.
Brasseur adjourns her final session as the PACE president, as Spain’s Pedro Agramunt is expected to take over.
Dalloz visited Crimea in July, within a delegation of eight French National Assembly members, headed by former French Minister of Transport Thierry Mariani.
In March 2014, 96 percent of Crimean residents voted for reunification with Russia after declaring independence from Ukraine. Kiev has refused to acknowledge the results and still considers the peninsula its territory.
