“We do not avoid discussions. We want to get to the bottom of the issue,” said Mottonen.

Volodin stressed that Ukraine is a part of the OSCE PA, the organization therefore needs to assess the “barbaric actions” of the authorities, guided by the “do not taste interests, and common democratic principles.”

“When immure its citizens just because they work in banks, although they are legal entities of the Ukraine, of course, here the voice of the OSCE should be heard”, — said the Chairman of the lower house of Parliament, adding that the pogroms of Russian banks happen “with the tacit consent of Europe.”
