President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Pedro Agramunt has voluntarily resigned, according to his Twitter. Agramunt says that he resigned for personal reasons.

As it was reported earlier, the lawmakers passed the no-confidence motion against Pedro Agramunt due to his cooperation with Russia and visit to Syria. Due to the incident, the PACE Bureau decreed that Agramunt had no right to make any official visits, attend sessions or utter any public declarations on behalf of the Assembly as its President. 

Agramunt himself said it was Ukraine’s initiative to launch a campaign in order to dismiss him.
