STRASBOURG, January 26. /TASS/. Russia's status and the powers of its delegation have been challenged again by 30 member states of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

British delegation leader Robert Walter called for the sanction at the opening of the assembly’s winter session on Monday, gaining the required voting support of at least five countries and two political groups.

Russia was stripped of its voting rights until January at the assembly's April session and excluded from all PACE management bodies in retaliation for Crimea’s reunification with Russia.

This provoked the delegation to leave the session in protest, refusing further participation in the group's work. Since then, the delegation has not attended the assembly’s summer and autumn sessions in Strasbourg.
