The procedure of Russia’s withdrawal from the CE this summer can start the Cabinet of Ministers of the international organization.
The head of the international Committee of the Federation Council of Russia Konstantin Kosachev said at the interagency level, considering the possible scenario of Russia from the Council of Europe.
He noted that if CE decides to start the procedure of freezing Russia’s membership, the country itself will leave the organization.
Thus Kosachev said that the conditions that put Russia, the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, “impossible”. Namely, the requirement to return the annexed Crimea to Ukraine and withdraw its troops from the South-East, to cease the repression of the Crimean Tatars.
It should be noted that in the rupture of relations between Russia and the CE part of Russia would be impossible in such basic documents as the Convention on the protection of the rights and freedoms of the individual, the fight against terrorism.
Add, procedure of Russia’s withdrawal from the CE this summer can start the Cabinet of Ministers of the international organization. Kosachev noted that this requires a two-thirds majority.
We will remind, the President of PACE, Liliane Maury Pasquier said that Russia is obliged to pay the debt to the budget of the Council of Europe. She stressed that the debt must be paid regardless of future decisions on the continuation of membership or withdrawal from the Council of Europe.
