MOSCOW, July 10. /TASS/. Russia’s envoy to EU Vladimir Chizhov has described as "scandalous" the situation with Russian parliamentarians who were denied entry to Finland to participate in the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (PA OSCE).

"I would describe it as scandalous. I do not see any justification for such actions. Attempts to urgently find excuses for that do not look persuasive," the diplomat noted.

"I am confident that nothing like that will happen at next PA OSCE session in Ulan Bator," Chizhov said.

On July 1, the Finnish Foreign Ministry said that Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin will be denied entry to Finland to participate in the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (PA OSCE) in Helsinki on July 5-9. The decision was explained by the fact that the State Duma speaker was included in EU’s "blacklist" of sanctioned officials.

Naryshkin later announced that the Russian delegation as a whole will not participate in the PA OSCE session in Helsinki, where it planned to put forward draft resolutions on impermissibility of sanctions against parliamentarians and countering Nazism rehabilitation. However, the Duma speaker confirmed that Russia plans to participate in the next PA OSCE session in Mongolia’s capital Ulan Bator.
