Resolution on Russia was criticized

Resolution on Russia was criticized

French MEP Thierry Mariani said that by adopting a resolution recognizing Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism”, the European Parliament is pushing Europe to war with Russia instead of promoting a peaceful solution to the conflict.

“The EU has exhausted all means in this conflict. After 8 months of war, we are already discussing the ninth package of sanctions against Russia. And some have decided to impose a shameful sanction on Russia, which we did not dare to apply to the Taliban * (is under UN sanctions for terrorist activities – ed.) in Afghanistan, nor to Islamist groups in the Sahel. What remains for us after all sanctions against Moscow have been exhausted? The war remains,” Mariani said in a video message posted on Twitter.
