Announced the likely return of Russia to PACE

It is possible that the Russian delegation will take part in the June session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, which will be held from June 24 to 28, and will also meet with the leadership of PACE. About this agency RIA News said the chairman of the Duma committee on international affairs Leonid Slutsky.

In many respects, this depends on the results of the meeting of the regulatory committee of the assembly, which is to be held on June 3.

Slutsky said that Russia would join the PACE session if its regulatory committee adopted a provision indicating the inadmissibility of discrimination against national delegations.

The signals that our country receives from the Council of Europe give reason to count on the adoption by PACE of a constructive and balanced decision. It should be understood that the return of the Russian Federation is important not so much for us as for the assembly itself. Such a decision will help PACE maintain the status of an influential European deliberative body.

To return the Russian Federation to this organization, certain technical procedures will also be required. In particular, confirmation of the credentials of the Russian delegation will be needed not only in January, but throughout the year.

Since the elections of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe will be held at the PACE June session, the participation of the Russian Federation in them will contribute to the legitimization of its status in this organization.

    Mr. Slutsky needs to take care, if not about his own dignity, then about the dignity of Russia - PACE has not yet lifted a finger regarding the adoption of measures to return the Russian delegation, and he already declares his readiness to return. Unworthy haste! Complete misunderstanding of the rules of decency! Can't wait to travel to master?

      Of course, business trips are fine, but it's not just about them. It is good if the voice of Russia is heard in Europe. The largest European country is simply obliged to be present at such sites.
      As for Slutsky, he, it seems, said so that Russia was ready to return after ...

        When was the voice of Russia heard in PACE? Will return, forced to pay for two years.

        It should be understood that the return of the Russian Federation is important not so much for us as for the assembly itself.

        This is what we must proceed from.

          To pay for the time of non-participation in the work of PACE is the same as to pay for a banquet in a restaurant on the threshold of which you were not allowed! Does anyone want Russia to be considered suckers? Most likely, the people of Russia will be against such a waste of public money.

        Sergey, Russia was deprived of the opportunity to speak in PACE, depriving themselves of the opportunity to hear. And while they did not repent. Therefore, the replicas of Slutsky are a manifestation of LOADING, which is unworthy of any individual. And for the country - even more so. Let them mature and call. But, apparently, the concepts of honor and dignity among our politicians are not in vogue.

    Very sorry. Our senators, deputies and officials, without this, can stay in Europe for months at public expense without this reason. And all the other arguments that we can convince someone of something there are a lie. In fact, they will spoil us for our money, under the miserable excuses of our messengers, who will also laugh at.
