Russia will not withdraw from the Council of Europe.
Russia will not leave the Council of Europe, as this area is important for the realization of its national interests.
This was told by the permanent representative of Russia to the Council of Europe Ivan Satanovsky.
“The question of the withdrawal from the Council of Europe now is not relevant. The crises end sooner or later. We all know that slamming the door is much more difficult to return”, – said the representative of the Russian Federation.
While Satanovsky added that payment of contributions to the budget of the COE from Moscow can be carried out only after the restoration of the Russian representation in the parliamentary Assembly.
“Some countries prefer to refrain from openly support us. However, to exit the Council of Europe’s structural crisis has been the majority of the countries members of the organization,” the diplomat said.
Recall that the PACE plans to consider the report on credentials and voting rights of national delegations already the 9th of October. Following consideration of the document can be adopted a resolution and recommendations of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.
Note that we are talking about amendments to the regulations, which in the future can return the Russian delegation to the Assembly.
