They explained that “these sanctions prohibit them, among other things, from traveling to the UK.” Vladimir Dzhabarov, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, said earlier that the UK had refused visas to members of the Russian delegation of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly to participate in the regular session. The OSCE PA session will be held July 2-6 in Birmingham. According to him, Russia will not recognize as legitimate the decisions of the OSCE PA session in the UK, for which the members of the Russian delegation did not receive visas, at the same time, Moscow considers it inappropriate to refuse to work in the OSCE PA.Matvienko called the denial of visas to the delegates to the OSCE PA lawlessness
