As the summer session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is ongoing in Strasbourg sans the participation of the Russian delegation, we took a look at how Russia has responded to the three resolutions that PACE has issued towards it over 2014 and 2015 – resolution 1990, 2034, and 2063.

On 10 April 2014, PACE voted to suspend the Russian delegation’s voting rights; these sanctions were prolonged till January 2016. On 4 June 2014, the Russian parliamentary delegation suspended its cooperation with PACE, since its delegates were deprived of voting rights in the aftermath of the Ukrainian conflict. In January 2016, the Russian parliament decided not to submit the credentials of its parliamentary delegation for ratification by PACE.

    Why does everyone try to suck up to Russia? We do not need Russia; they need us and need to approach the West with the attitude that they will become a civilized country and abide by international laws before we have anything to do with them. Stop running after Russia. Pace did exactly the right thing. Boot them.
