STRASBOURG, May 13 (Xinhua) -- An appeal to all sides in Ukraine to put an immediate end to violence and intimidation was made Tuesday by Anne Brasseur, president of PACE, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (CoE).

Speaking on behalf of the Assembly's Presidential Committee following a meeting in Luxembourg, Brasseur said: "Violence cannot and will not bring a solution - it must immediately stop and all sides must ensure that human rights are effectively respected on the whole territory of Ukraine."

Brasseur went to say that thorough investigations into acts of violence and intimidation will have to be carried out.

"All stakeholders must urgently engage in a broad national dialogue, as was agreed in Geneva," said Brasseur, adding that the Parliamentary Assembly stands ready to support by all means at its disposal.
