“We hope international and inter-parliamentary dialogue will be restored to the full extent and call once again on European counterparts to assess the negative consequences of their policy,” Naryshkin said on Wednesday on the eve of the national day of Russia.
Russia Day is celebrated on June 12.
Democratic values formed the basis of international dialogue, the politician said, noting with regret that “Western partners continue to apply double standards here”.
"The price of this double standard policy is in no way political. There are hundreds of people killed and burnt in Odessa, Mariupol, Kramatorsk and other cities and villages in southeast Ukraine.
“Our Western partners often say that there is no such thing as a free lunch and forget that the same formula can be applied to them."
“Two weeks ago, results of European Parliament elections became known. On the one hand, those who had in many ways incited and supported the Ukrainian crisis lost some votes. But on the other, those who had urged a more balanced and nationally oriented approach both within the European Union and in foreign affairs, including Ukraine, gained more supporters."
Naryshkin invited “everyone who is ready for extensive, honest and professional dialogue” to take part in an international parliamentary forum in Moscow on June 26.
