MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russia intends to raise the issue of transferring the OSCE Warsaw conference and Office of the High Commissioner on National Minorities (HCNM) to Vienna, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary released on Wednesday.
"This year, the issue of the ability of some countries to host OSCE events has been sharply raised," the document says. "Due to the EU sanctions and the stance of the Finnish authorities, the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly summer session (Helsinki, July 5-9) was held without Russian parliamentarians, and Poland denied entry to Crimea’s Deputy Prime Minister Georgy Muradov who was going to attend the Human Dimension Implementation Meeting."
"We intend to raise the issue of the transfer of the Warsaw conference, as well as the Hague Office of the HCNM to Vienna," the commentary says. "It will, among other things, significantly cut the budgets of these agencies."
