STRASBOURG, January 12. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma (lower house) Speaker Sergey Naryshkin may attend the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) due to be held in Strasbourg from January 26 to January 30, a PACE source told TASS on Monday.

“We received a list of members of the delegation from Moscow. Naryshkin is included in it,” the source said.

So, the Duma speaker “will be able to take part in the debates along with other parliamentarians,” it said.

On January 25, Naryshkin will have a closed-door meeting with members of the PACE Presidential Committee and its president, Anne Brasseur, the source said.

On April 10, the PACE passed a resolution that denied the Russian delegation the right to vote at the Assembly sessions and excluded it from the organization’s governing bodies until the end of the year over Russia’s reunification with Crimea. A total of 145 deputies voted in favor of the document, 21 voted against it and 22 abstained from voting.

The Russian delegation called the PACE decision unfair and illegitimate. The delegation was not present in full force at the summer and autumn sessions. In January, the powers of all delegations to the PACE should be formally reapproved.
