There should be six different sexes in the Russian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe

Summary of Disinformation

In the name of equality the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe asked Russia to include people from six sexes to their delegation.


The letter from the European Council Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) sent to the Russian parliament stated that Russia’s PACE delegation should include “at a very minimum one member of the under-represented sex appointed as a representative". It is a standard letter and all speakers of national parliaments received it at the end of November 2018.
