As it was reported, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution which changes the sanctions regime and allows Russia to return to work in the organization without limitations to the right to vote. 

The delegations of Ukraine and Georgia launched a complaints procedure in PACE over Russia’s return to the organization.

Moreover, the Ukrainian delegation stopped its work in the PACE, excluding the sessions concerning the Russian issue. 

As we reported profile committees of the PACE considered the question of restoring all authorities of the Russian delegation in the Assembly. The concluding recommendation passed after the night-time session says that these powers should be returned without any sanctions - not even those that remained after the PACE resolution was passed on June 24.
