A Tough Friendship With Russia

In an opinion editorial in The Moscow Times Swiss MEP Andreas Gross,  who serves as the Council of Europe’s co-rapporteur for Russia, says that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) is trying to forge ahead with a tough friendship with Russia. During the PACE session this week, one Russian delegate said PACE has a "strange notion of friendship" because it is critical of Russia. But friends are those who tell you upfront what you don't always want to hear.
