“I firmly condemn the death penalty sentences issued today in the occupied Ukrainian city of Donetsk. Death penalty is incompatible with human dignity and constitutes inhuman and degrading treatment. It has no place on the European continent.

On behalf of the Council of Europe, I call for upholding the common European human rights principles with which today’s decision is incompatible.”
