The creation by the five countries of the Baltic Plus group in PACE to counteract Russia is stupid and destructive, a member of the Russian delegation to PACE, head of the Duma committee on international affairs Leonid Slutsky, told reporters.
Earlier, the head of the Ukrainian delegation to PACE, Yelizaveta Yasko, announced the creation within the organization of a permanent Baltic Plus group, the main task of which will be counteraction to Russia. The group will include Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Georgia.
“This is stupid and destructive. The Helsinki agreements return Russia to the PACE site. The creation of the Baltic Plus group (aimed) specifically at working against the Russian delegation, it seems to me that it is somehow difficult to identify such sensible epithets,” he told reporters.
