MOSCOW, April 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will send a full-format delegation to the forthcoming PACE session, the chief of Russia’s delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Aleksei Pushkov, has said. In particular, he pointed out that the delegation would include State Duma member Leonid Slutsky, whose name features on the European Union’s list of Russian officials liable to sanctions.
“All members of the international parliamentary organizations, including Russian legislators, enjoy immunity,” he said. “They have the right to attend activities, in this particular case, the PACE session, and to stay in the EU territory during the session,” Pushkov explained.
The PACE session in Strasbourg is due on April 7-11.
