Russia should not wait for initiation of the procedure of an exception of PACE. Moscow started talking about freezing of membership in the Council of Europe.

reported about it the head of the State Duma Committee of Russia of the international affairs Leonid Slutsky, TASS writes.

the Russian politician says that such solution of the Kremlin is influenced by "disruptiveness" of the organization and its institutes.

Is possible, we should think of stay or the termination of membership of Russia in the Council of Europe, without waiting until any anti-Russian "slashing fellows" begin the procedure of an exception,

- he said.

Slutsky commented on the statement of the Secretary general of the Council of Europe Jagland for a possibility of an exception of Russia of the list of member countries if that does not begin to pay contributions to the budget of the Council of Europe till June, 2019.

in reply the Russian politician accused the Council of Europe of "very ungentlemanly" situation.

"It makes such statements as the secretary general driven into a corner. He is a person not pro-Russian and not anti-Russian. He is the chief official in the Council of Europe which there are just not enough financial means", - Slutsky noted.

according to him, Moscow was tired of "infinite Russophobic hysteria", discrimination and double standards in PACE.
