The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) ratified full rights for the Russian delegation on Wednesday, in a 96-44 vote.

Seven people abstained.

Earlier in the day, the Monitoring Committee of PACE rejected most of the anti-Russia amendments to the resolution on extending the Russian delegation's authority, according to  Petr Tolstoy, the deputy chairman of the Russian lower house and the delegation's head.

The Russian delegation was stripped of its voting rights in April 2014 because of the situation in Ukraine.
