Permanent Representative to PACE: No to our delegation - no contributions to the Council of Europe

44
The Russian side does not see any progress in restoring the full powers of the delegation of the Russian Federation to PACE; there is no reason to change the position on payments to the budget of the Council of Europe, said in an interview with RIA News Russia's permanent representative to the Council of Europe, Ivan Soltanovsky.


Permanent Representative to PACE: No to our delegation - no contributions to the Council of Europe


In connection with the deprivation of the right of the Russian Federation to fully participate in the work of one of the statutory bodies of the Council of Europe, namely the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the country's leadership decided to suspend the payment of part of the contribution for 2017 a year. At the moment there is no progress in fulfilling, in fact, the only requirement of the Russian side - the unconditional restoration of the full powers of our parliamentary delegation to the PACE
- said Soltanovsky.

Since 2016, the Russian Federation has not sent the documents necessary for accrediting its delegation to PACE, since in 2014 – 2015, Russian parliamentarians were deprived of voting rights at sessions and a number of other rights because of their position on Crimea. At the end of June last year, the Russian side announced that it intends to suspend part of payments to the Council of Europe budget for 2017 a year until the powers of the delegation to PACE are fully restored.

Accordingly, so far there are no grounds for changing the position on payments to the budget of the Council of Europe.
- added a senior diplomat.

        "Russia is destroying the international order!"

        - by refusing to pay for being held back

        sometimes I think, are we really “behind the free world” - as if we speak different languages

          On January 23rd there will be a meeting of the PACE Bureau to determine future rules in PACE and a possible amendment to the Charter. For the first time since the crisis, representatives of Russia will be present. They’ll see what this coven is agreed to.

        In January 17th, they decided not to fully pay the fee, but in part. They do not agree, some amounts are still being transferred there. Although it was necessary to completely stop ALL payments in PACE, since our representatives are not there, and so, we all hope for some common sense in the heads of the partners.

        Exactly! All this PACE was invented so that Russia would not be accepted into the European Parliament under any guise. They put the EBN-u pasture-table - they sat side by side with the reserved seat on the side, but the money came. About this PACE, only the Dumaks will be moaning on a business trip there as a “platform” ... to go to the public expense in Europe. For Russia, as a state it was some kind of zahar maso at his own expense.

        It would not be bad for him to strengthen Satanovsky Yevgeny Yanovich (in the common people "Armagedonych")

        with a club in his right hand and not a microphone to drive the Europeans.

    I would like to clarify - and which part, at least in percentage terms.
    And then maybe they refused to pay some scanty part, but everyone was already happy and delighted ...

      11 million euros. About a third of the total contribution to the Council of Europe.

    It is time to stop funding the Council of Europe for anti-Russian politics. I don’t understand what Russia is doing in a Russophobic, hostile organization? Why should hostile organizations be financed? This is some kind of masochism.

    Only in the past (2017), Pushkov explained that money for the OSCE, PACE and the EU (European court) go in one payment. That is why our several years snot chewed and wiped from spitting.

    it is necessary not to part, but to cease all payments in PACE. Considering that we paid one of the largest contributions, this will significantly affect the organization’s budget

    And here I have another question. Russia ranks fourth in terms of payments in PACE and is among the top five and has no voting rights and decision rights! And the rest of the mongrels pay a purely formal amount, 1/5 of our payment and have a voice and the right to yap - and we need it!

    PACE, Russia is not only a member of the COUNCIL OF EUROPE - a parliamentary delegation, but also works through the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and PACE. They work through the cultural and international exchange of the Russian Federation and PACE countries .... And these are different directions and budgets of these lines .. Russia has left the presence of the PACE Parliamentary Assembly (due to deprivation of its vote there and the right to be elected to the PACE Parliamentary Assembly management apparatus) , therefore, Russia decided to stop paying only to the budget of the PACE Parliamentary Assembly .. But on other lines of PACE, Russia is participating in the work, and therefore, it is still paying that part of its contributions to PACE budgets ..)))) That's something like that.

    It is necessary to bring down from there, and not to discuss to pay or not! What specifically did the Council of Europe decide and what actions did it bring to the world in Europe and become the basis for integration? At least someone will call the usefulness of this anthill until it really becomes a tool for Europeans to do the hell out there. And while this is a political eatery for flawed erasers, such as the Baltic States, where they come off to the full

    When they will tearfully call for something to “resolve”, then it will be necessary to set a condition for the payment of a fine in the amount of the established annual contribution, multiplied by the number of years that Russia has been under sanctions. You can also notify PACE, let them collect "money" in advance, for the possibility of "operational resolution" in the future.
