Volodin: Either full rights, or we leave PACE

Recently we Reportedhow the delegation of Ukrainian "patriots" from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) made another Russophobic hysteria. And so, on June 26, 2019, the State Duma chairman (speaker) Vyacheslav Volodin said during a plenary meeting that Russia would leave PACE if the rights of the Russian delegation were not fully restored.

I think that all of you will support the previously adopted position: either our delegation has full rights and they must be inviolable, or we leave the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe

- said Volodin to the parliamentarians.

Deputies supported Volodin's words with applause. On this occasion, the State Duma is in full agreement.

It should be noted that on the same day, the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that reducing the rights of the Russian delegation makes it impossible (meaningless) to participate in the work of PACE.

It should be recalled that in the morning of June 26, 2019, the PACE monitoring committee recommended confirming the credentials of the Russian delegation in this oldest inter-parliamentary organization. Before that, on June 25, 2019, the rights of the Russian delegation tried to challenge the delegations of Georgia and Ukraine, who accused Russia of "occupation and aggression."

In May 2019, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution stating that all countries of the Council of Europe have the right to equal participation in the Committee of Ministers and in PACE. Some time later, on the night of June 25, 2019, PACE officially invited Russia to participate in the June session in an exceptional manner. 118 deputies from 23 countries voted in favor, 62 against, and 10 abstained.

But this "tug of war" can last forever, so Russia put forward an ultimatum to solve this issue finally.

    I am very negative towards Volodin, because of his proposal to completely abolish state pensions in Russia, but here I completely agree with him.

    In general, all relations with this organization must be terminated. While Europe is a US colony, nothing shines for us in this organization.
    It is necessary to initiate the creation of such an organization with the countries of Asia. And to strengthen relations with them. Trade, political, cultural and others.

    I don’t even know which of them is more disgusting, the PACE itself or those crooks who stubbornly climb there despite spitting and bullying, is it true that it is smeared with honey?

    They should pay money only from the day that GREAT RUSSIA regained its status in this organization. And no longer a ruble!
