Following the meeting of the Joint Committee and the Committee of Ministers was not created by the working group, which would reform the Council of Europe under the return of Russia. About this on his page in Facebook said the representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe Dmitry Kuleba.
“The scenario of lawyers of Russia, even the establishment of the working group was supposed to be a signal to Moscow and to all who are still undecided with GE: we are prepared to negotiate, looking for solutions,” says Kuleba.
However, according to him, the meeting concluded, the working group has not been established, but the Ukrainian position is that there are no conditions for returning of Russia and do not need any working groups.
“Our partners have been more diplomatic, but also not supported the creation of the group. The Russian Ambassador and several other ambassadors called for the establishment of the group,” – said Kuleba.
“Together with our partners, we this initiative failed,” he concludes.
October 11, PACE adopted a resolution, which could theoretically open the way to changes in regulations that will allow you to return to the meeting room of the delegation of the Russian Federation.
