They discussed issues of cooperation at the CoE site, outlining their concerns regarding the mechanism proposed by France to respond to violations by member countries of their statutory obligations. In our opinion, this contradicts the May agreements reached by the CMCE in Helsinki.
In addition, they stated that the creation of the Baltic + group (Ukraine, Georgia, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania) is aimed directly at counteracting the work of the Russian delegation and is contrary to the spirit of constructive cooperation in the Assembly.
Ms. Secretary General was sympathetic to everything that we talked about, but how much time will be reached in practice will show time.
We look forward to the visit of Maria Peichinovich-Burich to Russia, especially since she herself expressed interest in visiting our country.
