Estonian president disappointed with PACE resolution on Russia

Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid has criticized a decision approved by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to approve a resolution allowing the Russian Federation to return to the organization.

In a post on Twitter, she wrote: “Last night’s decision made by PACE – manuevering Russia back behind the table with procedurical moves – is an embarrassment to PACE. None of the reasons Russia was stripped of its voting rights have disappeared”.

As reported, the PACE adopted a resolution and introduced amendments to the regulations, which may complicate or block the imposition of sanctions on the Russian delegation and ensure its return to the Assembly without fulfilling international obligations.
