And the letter made that clear David SassoliThey did not request entry to Russia, and it is clear that a political attack: They are trying to strike parliaments because they are the citizens’ voice, and this means that the European Parliament has done its duty to defend basic freedoms, in denouncing violations of the rule of law in Russia and in many countries around the world, he said Tg1.
News that he ended up on the list of eight unwelcome Europeans In Moscow, with the Vice-President of the European Union Commission Vera Gorova, committed to condemning the systematic interference of Russian disinformation campaigns, Sasoli learned of this from a phone call from the High Representative of the European Union Josep Borrell, which was followed by an invitation from our Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio who expressed his full solidarity with him. Then there was a series of testimonials of support from the European and Italian political world of all colors. Starting with the phone call from Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (President of the European Council Charles Michel was flying and back as soon as he arrived). For the European Commissioner for the Economy, Paolo Gentiloni, the Russian sanctions are as unjustified as they are useless, while for Roberto Fico, the speaker of the House of Representatives, they represent an incomprehensible, hostile gesture. Senate President Elisabetta Caselati described it as an unprecedented frightening gesture.
Sasoli reiterated his commitment: No sanctions or intimidation will prevent me or the European Parliament from standing up for human rights, freedom and democracy. Threats will not silence us, and then, citing Tolstoy, he indicated that there is no greatness where there is no truth. to me Tg1 He said the European Union would continue to say that Navalny should be released.

Beijing hit all members of the European Parliament who are members of the Commission on Human Rights, including its president, Marie Arena.

In the afternoon, I have been in contact with all institutions and our response will be adequate Tg1 -. Europeans love democracy and freedom and want to express their views when basic values are violated in Russia and in many parts of the world and I think that is our duty.
Thursday, the eve of the sanctions imposed by Moscow Against the eight Europeans, the European Parliament adopted in plenary a resolution in which members of the European Parliament express their deep concern about the recent Russian military buildup on the border with Ukraine and the revelation of Russian agents behind the explosions in the Czech Republic. The scenario of the invasion of Ukraine by Moscow should entail – for members of the European Parliament – the immediate cessation of EU oil and gas imports from Russia, the exclusion of Russia from the SWIFT payment system, the asset freeze and the revocation of visas to Europe for all the few associated with the Russian authorities. They also reiterated their call for the immediate and unconditional release of Alexei Navalny. Pressure will now increase to stop the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
