MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. The speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament Sergey Naryshkin is due to head the delegation of the country’s lawmakers at the session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar, the Izvestiya newspaper has said.
The meeting of the OSCE PA will be held on September 15-18. The theme is "Addressing security challenges for the OSCE region and beyond: the role of parliamentarians in fostering regional co-operation."
The report said citing Leonid Slutsky, chairman of Russia's State Duma committee on CIS, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots, that the Russian delegation is due to stress that the sanctions against parliamentarians are illegal and inadmissible.
The Russian parliamentarians will also draw attention to the incident when Naryshkin was denied a visa to travel to Finland in July. The crimes against civilians in Ukraine will also be discussed.
"We will maintain Russia’s position on these issues. The international community should know the truth," Slutsky told the newspaper.
