Margelov told RIA Novosti on telephone from Paris that already a third committee of the Council of Europe prepares a report on the situation of the Russian speaking population in Latvia.
The Russian senator emphasized that this theme is being worked out in the PACE monitoring commission. In addition, the report on the situation of the Russian-speaking population in Latvia is also being prepared by the commission for the political issues.
"The Russian delegation welcomes such an interested attitude of the European structures to the problem of Russian speakers in Latvia," Margelov declared.
He stressed that the Russian language is one of the official languages in the PACE and that it should occupy a worthy place in Europe. Mikhail Margelov conducted the latest, January, PACE session in Strasbourg in Russian.
