This inter-parliamentary association was set up in late June at a session of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly in Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, on the initiative by Russian parliament lower house State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin. The contact group is expected to include 10-12 representatives of OSCE member states. Members of the contact group mainly seek to work out recommendations for a peaceful solution to Ukrainian crisis and bringing unbiased information to the OSCE about current events in the country’s southeast.
Pushkov noted that this issue was being debated “at the level of the assembly’s leadership and several delegations from the countries which will join the contact group.” “My forecast is that this event has all chances to take place in late September or the first half of October,” the deputy added.
