The speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko and other members of the Russian delegation decided not to participate in the session of the inter-Parliamentary Union in new York after the U.S. issued Matvienko truncated visa. Under the terms of the visa Matviyenko would be unable to participate in the session of the Union. For it would be available only to the meeting by the UN.
