Naryshkin and Brasseur had a telephone conversation, in the course of which she asked the Duma to send its delegation to the session, even though with slashed powers.
Naryshkin reaffirmed his position, which suggests that the full scope of powers of the Russian delegation should be restored. “This is a mandatory prior condition for the resumption of full-scale activities of the Russian MPs in that inter-parliamentary body,” the Duma report said.
Naryshkin informed Brasseur, on his part, he was going to take part in the functions of the parliamentary assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, due to be held in Baku June 28. He said Brasseur and he might have a meeting on that floor and might discuss, among other things, a possible setting up of an inter-parliamentary contact group for the situation in Ukraine.
Naryshkin called for utilizing the PACE potential in order to dispel the crisis around Ukraine. He indicated however that the Kiev authorities should stop their punitive operation in the predominantly Russian-speaking southeastern regions of the country as the first step.
The telephone conversation was held at Brasseur’s initiative.
