A Russian parliamentary delegation is going to pay a visit to Madrid next month, where the delegation will participate in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

According to Chairman of the Russian upper house's foreign affairs committee Konstantin Kosachev, this delegation is going to consist of three people each from the State Duma and the Council of the Federation.

“We will not return to full-scale participation in the PACE assembly until the assembly revises its regulations, and depriving delegations of authority will not be impossible on the basis of the assembly rules,” Сhairman of the Russian lower house of parliament's international affairs committee Leonid Slutsky reported.
