MOSCOW, June 26 (Itar-Tass) — A member of the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights, Igor Yurgens, filed an application for leaving the Council.

Yurgens will be the 17th member who quit the Council. If another three members leave it, the Council will lose its quorum and legitimacy.
The Council’s president, Mikhail Fedotov, has repeatedly confirmed that in this case he would resign.
