October 11, PACE adopted resolution 2186, which refers to the need to harmonize the rules for the participation and representation of member countries in both the statutory bodies of the Council – the PACE and the Committee of Ministers. This resolution can help to return to the courtroom of the Russian delegation. Almost all the amendments proposed by the Ukrainian delegation was rejected.

Permanent representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe Dmitry Kuleba said that Ukraine is “inclined” to compromise in the issue of the return of Russians to the PACE. According to him, “the price for Russia’s return” I asked him the last two weeks.

Kuleba noted that on October 12 the meeting of the joint Committee and the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (Committee of Ministers) refused to establish a working group, which “had to actually seek reform of the Council of Europe (COE) under the return of Russia.

Russia was deprived of voting rights in PACE in April 2014, immediately after the annexation of Crimea and the outbreak of hostilities in the Donbass. January 28, 2015, PACE adopted a resolution that extended sanctions against Russia and deprived it of voting rights until April.

In protest, the Russian delegation said it would suspend its contacts with the parliamentary Assembly.

During 2016 and the last nine months of 2017, the Russian delegation did not participate in the Assembly.
