The seven states that voted against the return of powers of the Russian delegation at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe intend to prepare a joint resolution on the relevant decision of the PACE. This was stated by Head of the Senate of Poland Stanislav Karchevsky, Polish Radio reported.

Karchevsky met with representatives of countries invited to Lublin to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the signing of the Lublin Union.

“We talked about this topic yesterday. We are outraged by this situation. Representatives of the countries that came to today's celebrations told me that they want to prepare a joint resolution. But here, in Lublin, during these celebrations, it will be very difficult. We talked about holding a joint meeting as soon as possible," said the official.

According to him, in the near future, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Slovakia, and Georgia will discuss joint steps.
Earlier, Canada expressed concerns over the PACE decision to restore the Russian delegation's authority in the Assembly. Canadian Foreign Ministry's press office reported that on Twitter.

'Canada is concerned with Parliamentary Assembly CoE decision to unconditionally restore voting rights to Russia. We must continue to hold Russia accountable for its violations of international law, and Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity', reads the post.

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.
