The Council of Europe has lost its original functions, so Russia is relieved to leave this organization, said Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. This is reported RIA News.
According to its symptoms, it is currently observed in some supranational institutions that grossly violate professional qualifications in exceptional cases. As an example of bodies that do not perform direct functions for the sake of the interests of the state, Medvedev named his UN Councils for Human Adjustment.
“For us, this body no longer exists,” he said.
Medvedev stressed that this platform is closed for Russia, while communication in other places is currently impossible. He noted that this also applies to the Council of Europe.
“We are relieved to leave this very strange institution, due to the thoughtlessness of the increased danger in childhood of the development of modern Russian statehood,” Medvedev said.
According to him, Russia remains a peripheral country in Europe, but it does not have access to European communication platforms. In this regard, it is not possible to discuss a new security system on the continent, the deputy chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation stated.
“There are other examples of an irrational attitude towards the INF Treaty,” Medvedev said.
Russia has decided not to participate in the Council of Europe in the greater March. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation is discussing issues related to the fact that they are members of the Committee of the Council of Europe.
