Presentation and competencies
 

The European Parliament created the Delegation to the EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee (PCC) on 1 December 1997. The EU-Russia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) signed in 1997, which still constitutes the legal basis for EU-Russia relations, laid the foundation for interparliamentary relations between the two parties and for the EU-Russia PCC. It established a political framework for regular consultation between the EU and Russia, based on the principles of respect for democracy and human rights, political and economic freedom, and commitment to international peace and security. In this spirit, as of 1997 and until early 2014, the EU-Russia PCC served as a stable platform for the development of political and economic cooperation, and for continued dialogue between the European Parliament and the two chambers of the Russian Federal Assembly - the State Duma and the Federation Council. In this period, the EU-Russia PCC followed and debated issues of common interest within its parliamentary remit, covering a wide range of policy areas.
Since March 2014, in the wake of the Ukrainian crisis and in line with diplomatic measures forming part of the EU sanctions policy against Russia, the European Parliament has discontinued interparliamentary relations with the Russian Federal Assembly.
In the current context, the Delegation to the EU-Russia PCC meets regularly to reflect and debate on developments and themes of interest in EU-Russia relations. It also maintains a channel for discussion and exchange with representatives of Russian civil society, non-governmental organisations and the media.
