MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – September 23, 2021) The Russian delegation at the autumn session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) beginning on September 27 has been banned from moving freely in Strasbourg because the European Union does not recognize the vaccination with Sputnik V, a member of the Russian delegation, said House of Lords MP Vladimir Krugly.

“The PACE meeting in Strasbourg starts on Monday.

Our delegation has received an instruction that you can only move between the hotel and the Parliamentary Assembly building as you are not vaccinated and come from a red zone, “Krugly said at an international medical conference.

Meanwhile, the members of the Turkish delegation, who also come from a red zone but have been vaccinated with Pfizer, are not subject to any restrictions, as is the Ukrainian delegation, the legislature emphasized.

“That doesn’t look nice,” continued Krugly.
