PACE Puzzled Why Russia Left After Voting Rights Suspension / Sputnik International

Talka notes: Well, lookie here. Just when you think the EU couldn't possibly become more clueless than they currently are, they go ahead and prove you wrong.

PACE delegates were left confused after the Russian delegation left the forum as a response to a suspension of their voting rights until April.

MOSCOW, January 30 (Sputnik) — Legislators at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) were left confused as the Russian party left the session after a suspension of its voting rights.

"The day after the vote, we were confronted with the consequences of our 'brilliant' decision," one legislator told Sputnik, saying that he considers the resolution to deprive Russia of voting rights "blunt foolishness."

As a result of the decision, Russia's delegation has left PACE and will no longer participate in discussions on renewing Russia's voting rights in the organization. According to PACE President Anne Brasseur, a reversal of the decision will depend on fulfilling all points of the resolution, which means "troop withdrawal from Transnistria, return of Crimea, progress in resolving the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, release of Savchenko within 24 hours" and other acts.

The British and Ukrainian delegations reacted to the result of the resolution positively and continued to discuss the situation even after the Russian delegation had left. However, the other delegates were confused by the result.
