Russia will not take part in the plenary session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) in Kyiv. This was stated by the head of the Russian delegation to the organization, Mikhail Yemelyanov, according to RIA Novosti.

According to Yemelyanov, Russia will not take part in the plenary session because of the lack of an invitation from Ukraine, which acts as its organizer. The representative of the Russian Federation called the situation "an unprecedented case."

"There was an absolutely unprecedented case when the Ukrainian side, the host country, did not invite Russia, the participating country, to the meeting, which has never happened," he said.

He added that the corresponding invitation to the Russian side was to be sent by Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andriy Parubiy.

"I understand why Mr. Parubiy did not want to send an invitation to our side, because they adopted a law on languages, a law that outrages not only Russia, but also Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece - all PABSEC countries. And Russia's presence again could draw attention to this issue, "Yemelyanov added.

As previously reported, the 50th Plenary Session of the PABSEC will be held in Kyiv in November.
