Great Britain denied visas to members of the Russian delegation of the OSCE PA to participate in the regular session. Vladimir Dzhabarov, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, spoke about this, RIA Novosti reports.
All members of the Russian delegation are under sanctions. For this reason, the deputies asked the leadership of the assembly, as well as the Russian Foreign Ministry, to work out and resolve the issue of providing guarantees for the issuance of entry visas by the British side.
“Unfortunately, we received, in fact, outrageous response that the British government cannot issue visas to the Russian delegation, for whatever purpose they visit the country, — Dzhabarov said.
The OSCE PA session will be held on July 2–6 in Birmingham.
Great Britain, following the EU, imposed sanctions against Russian parliamentarians in March this year due to a special operation in Ukraine.
