The head of Russia’s delegation to Europe’s human rights watchdog says the country will suspend its involvement after losing its right to vote.
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on Wednesday voted to renew sanctions against Russia, which includes stripping its voting rights, over the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The decision is expected to stand until at least April. In response, Alexei Pushkov told Russian television late Wednesday that the Russian delegation was “walking out of the Parliamentary Assembly” and will not participate in its sessions until the end of the year.
