MOSCOW, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian lawmakers will take part in a session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe due to be held in Strasbourg on September 29 through October 3, the Izevstia newspaper writes in its Thursday issue.
The delegation will include members of the State Duma lower parliament house Robert Shlegel, Olga Kazakova and Olga Borzova, who will be co-rapportuers on internet security, on fight against neo-Nazism and public health.
A source in the Russian parliament told the Izvestia that the rest of the Russian delegation and its leader Alexei Pushkov will be back at the PACE only after its rights are fully restored.
Europe is interested in the soonest settlement in Ukraine but there will be no full-scale dialogue with Russia until the European Union cancels its sanctions and the Russian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is restored in its rights, the source said, adding that as of yet the delegation’s returning to the PACE was out of the question.
