MOSCOW, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A Just Russia parliamentary faction will support Russian parliament State Duma lower house’s statement on an anti-Russian resolution adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), but believes that it is a too soft response to sanctions which European lawmakers imposed on Russia, first deputy leader of A Just Russia parliamentary faction Mikhail Yemelyanov told reporters before a plenary meeting of the State Duma on Friday.
“PACE is outdated hopelessly not only as a channel of communications with Russia, but also as an international organization,” Yemelyanov believes.In his view, Russian parliament should insist on creating new types of dialogue with European lawmakers. He gave as an example “a Russian-European forum where lawmakers from Russia, EU states would be represented on an equal basis and where no one would teach anyone.”
The State Duma will debate a draft statement on PACE’s anti-Russian resolution on Friday, in which the lower house intends to put forward a condition to the Assembly for continued talks with Russia in the way of full cancellation of sanctions against the Russian delegation.
