The Chairman of the State Duma noted that 39 of the 47 countries of the Council of Europe voted for the return of Russia to PACE. However, “provocations again come from those countries that cannot support themselves and work off a debt by such extremist methods,” he said.
Viaсheslav Viktoroviсh The Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the seventh convocation. He was elected as part of the federal list of candidates proposed by the All-Russian political party “United Russia” believes that this will be the case for some time, therefore he asked to “take it easy”.
The Chairman of the State Duma pointed out that today in PACE there are a lot of “policies that are not aimed at objectivity, but are based on double standards, and where the development of our country is being impeded, countries that show greater sovereignty in making decisions or have their own position are being picked on.”
“As a rule, such an agenda is initiated and further produced by the satellite countries of the United States of America: the Baltic States, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia. If they had wanted stable development, they would never have taken such steps. Why initiate conflict when it is possible to build relations on exact principles, principles of mutual respect, non-interference in the affairs of sovereign states, on the principles of good neighborliness,” said Viacheslav Volodin.
He believes that the United States imposes its trade policy, in particular, the sale of shale gas, through these countries and to achieve this it supports the tension in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe through the representatives of the Baltic States, Ukraine, Georgia, and Poland.
Speaking about the situation with Georgia, the Chairman of the State Duma said that “the President of Georgia, who publicly spoke about Russia as an aggressor country, should disavow these words, apologize and explain her position. How can we develop relations if the Georgian leadership behaves like this?”
