The intrigue about the participation of Russians in the PACE session is stored, said Slutsky

Интрига об участии россиян в сессии ПАСЕ сохраняется, заявил Слуцкий

The intrigue of whether the Russian parliamentarians participate in the PACE winter session, maintained, reported to journalists the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

“Still remains intriguing whether the Russian parliamentarians participated in the January session of the Assembly in 2017”, — said Slutsky, whose words are quoted by his press service.

Previously, Slutsky said that the intrigue will be resolved in December and the decision “will be made at the political level.”

If a discriminatory decision, including the deprivation of voice of Russia in PACE, will not be revised, the Russian delegation in Strasbourg did not come back, has previously stressed the head of Committee of the state Duma.

In 2014 and 2015 PACE because of the position of Russia in the Crimea adopted the resolution, which deprived the Russian delegation of the right to vote at the session, the right to participate in the work of the statutory bodies and the monitoring of elections. In January 2016, Russia decided not to send the necessary to confirm the authority of the delegation documents, but refused to work with Strasbourg as a whole.

During the January session of 2017 are traditionally pereodevaetsya the powers of the national delegations. Moscow has not yet made a decision regarding participation in the session. The head of the international Committee of the state Duma Leonid Slutsky said that the state Duma delegation in international organizations, including PACE, can be formed at the end of November — beginning of December.
