At a meeting of the PABSEC Committee in Varna, the members of the Ukrainian delegation suggested to remove holding the PABSEC session in Russia from the schedule for 2016, as reported by Refat Chubarov, Head of the Mejlis of Crimean Tatars, who is taking part in the meeting.

Among the reasons: Russian aggression against Ukraine, the occupation of Crimea and lack of security guarantees for some PABSEC members during their stay in Russia.

It was reported earlier that Varna city (Bulgaria) has hosted the joint meeting of the PABSEC Economic, Commercial, Technological and Environmental Affairs Committee, and Legal and Political Affairs Committee.
