Verkhovna Rada to revise principles of cooperation with PACE if restrictions lifted from Russian delegation - statement

KYIV. Oct 2 (Interfax) - Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada passed a statement on Tuesday saying that a possible lifting of restrictions from Russia's delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) bypassing relevant resolutions will mean that PACE admits to its political incompetence and will force the Ukrainian parliament to reconsider the principles and mechanisms of its cooperation with the assembly.

A total of 242 Ukrainian MPs backed the statement, an Interfax correspondent reported.
