Russia allows for unofficial visit of PACE delegation to Crimea

A senior State Duma MP has said that Russia would look into possibility of the visit to Crimea by the head of PACE’€™s Social-Democratic caucus, Andreas Gross, albeit not within the remit of the Russia-PACE dialogue.

Aleksey Pushkov, chair of the lower house Committee for International Relations, told TASS that after Russian delegation withdrew its participation in PACE in protest of the sanctions imposed on it by this body, any official visits through PACE channels have become impossible.
