The European Parliament's decision to restrict access to Russian envoy Vladimir Chizhov is narrow-minded and absurd, a senior official at the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"This decision is both narrow-minded and absurd," said Konstantin Dolgov, the ministry's human rights envoy.
"The parliament should be open for dialogue, in this case, with Russian representatives," he said. "They [the parliament] have often been politicised and blind-folded regarding the situation in Russia and our foreign policy."
