The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Ukraine says that the return of the Russian Federation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) will weaken the organization and undermine its rules.

“Lifting Russia’s ban in PACE is obviously not the right policy silver bullet that could #StopRussianAggression. Conversely, it would weaken this reputable organization, subverting the fairness and transparency of rules in the CoE #SaveCouncilEurope,” MFA spokesperson Kateryna Zelenko said on Twitter on June 24.
