Sanctions against Russia find no support with PACE
Earlier, 24 PACE members called for the suspension of Russia's powers in the Assembly.
“All the participants of the meeting were against any sanctions in respect of either the Russian or the Georgian delegation. Those who signed the draft resolution have put the Assembly in an uncomfortable position,” Kosachev said.
The PACE autumn session is currently underway in Strasbourg and its major focus is the military conflict in South Ossetia in August.
The group will hear a report by the fact-finding mission that visited Russia, Georgia and South Ossetia last week.
