Kosachev: common sense has prevailed in PACE
Common sense has prevailed in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe where for the first time over the past five years the aggressive anti-Russian minority has failed to impose its viewpoint, Russian Senator Konstantin Kosachev said, commenting on a resolution enabling Russian legislators to return to PACE and take part in the summer session.
"Tonight, the first and a very important result has been achieved in Strasbourg. Perhaps, the aggressive and well-mobilized minority, which is no stranger to twisting facts and sometimes a blatant lie, has failed to impose on PACE its "only right viewpoint," Kosachev wrote on his Facebook page.
"Common sense has prevailed in the Assembly as well as the understanding of the responsibility for the fate of the entire organization, rather than its "armed wing," and, if you want, the feeling of political self-preservation," he added.
Kosachev noted that today PACE is expected to announce the terms for a possible return of the Russian delegation to the Assembly. "It will be no less hot," the senator believes.
