In 2019 the Russian delegation, probably, will not return to work at the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
About it reports RBC-Ukraine with reference to the statement by the head of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE Vladimir Aryev in the air of Radio Liberty.
According to Aryev, the Russian Federation (RF) has a single opportunity to restore the powers – to bring this issue in January. However, he noted, the draft agenda for this question is no.
“If Russia will not be served in January, then in 2019 the whole year it is not. When we saw the draft agenda for the January 2019, the report was not worth it. In the best case it will be reviewed in April, maybe even next summer”, – Aryev told.
In addition, the head of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE noted that the return of the Russian Federation is unlikely, as the restrictive measures against the Russian delegation had not been withdrawn.
“The train has left. Russia said clearly that they will not be available until then, while the Assembly will not go forward. In terms of the abolition of the possibilities of imposing sanctions against the national delegation. The Assembly did not go forward. In fact, what happened: Russia said it will not file its delegation. The question for January is already put” – he explained.
It is worth Recalling that the next session of the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg was marked by a number of scandals, the protagonists of which were the representatives of the current Ukrainian authorities.
