on Wednesday, the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has deprived the Russian delegation's voting rights until April, thereby extending introduced last April penalties because of the situation in Ukraine. The head of the delegation Alexei Pushkov said that the Russian Federation PACE leaves before the end of the year. According to him, at the end of the year will be to address the question of Russian membership in the Council of Europe. Russia joined the Council of Europe in 1996.
the MPs from the liberal democratic party first told that the possible withdrawal of Russia from the Council of Europe means automatic termination decisions of the European court of human rights (ECtHR) in the Russian Federation, and also gives the right to restore the death penalty in the Criminal code. In their vision, the moratorium will give the ability to execute a large number of bandits that are on today in Russian prisons.
