Information policy minister: Russia should stay away from PACE
Yuriy Stets commented on the recent statement by Assembly’s President who offered to return the Russian delegation back in the line-up
Ukraine’s information policy minister Yuriy Stets decisively condemned the idea to return the Russian delegation to PACE session hall. The respective offer was recently voiced out by Pedro Agramunt, the Assembly’s President.
‘I just can’t imagine the Russian delegation returning to PACE; one barely can call Russia a state – it’s merely a barbaric criminal gang located partially in Europe and partially in Asia. They kidnap a man and the information becomes available only a week later; they don’t let the consul see him for almost a week. It’s not a law-driven state anymore. I have no idea how representatives of other countries can sit next to these people. The man in charge (PACE President Pedro Agramunt, - 112 International) should be dismissed. If the Russian delegation actually shows up… they’ve got nothing to do there. They just stink... and people got tired of them,’ the official said.
Previously, Ukraine’s representative in the PACE Iryna Gerashchenko said that the Ukrainian delegation would preliminarily doubt the competence and authority of Pedro Agramunt – due to his offer to restore the rights of the Russian delegation in the PACE.
