He had been in Tbilisi but hadn't been in Moscow. There were reasons to think he would build up (critics of Russia). But I had met him beforehand, and he seemed to listen to Russian arguments, and cut out that part of his speech", - said Slutsky, concluding the results of the 3-day meeting of The Political Committee of PACE , finished in the UN headquarters on Wednesday.
