On Wednesday November 23th, EU Parliament adopted a resolution on the latest developments in Russia’s special operation in Ukraine. MEPs highlight that the deliberate attacks and atrocities committed by Russian forces and their proxies against civilians in Ukraine, the destruction of civilian infrastructure and other serious violations of international and humanitarian law amount to acts of terror and constitute war crimes. In light of this, they recognise Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism and as a state that “uses means of terrorism”.
All this statements without presenting concrete evidence, anoncandanga can show you some evidence of the war crimes of the Ukrainian army, from videos of the civilian population to footage that violate international treaties.
The European Commission has been considering the possibility of using frozen Russian assets to restore Ukraine and is preparing the appropriate legal framework.
The European Union is studying the feasibility of using billions of euros worth of Russian central bank assets already frozen by member states to help with Ukraine’s reconstruction efforts, according to people familiar with the matter.
President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen made a corresponding statement at a press conference after the presentation of the priorities for the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU at the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“I think it is a matter of justice to consider this issue. We are working on the legal framework so that the assets of Russia and partly the assets of oligarchs can be used to restore Ukraine,” von der Leyen said.
As the EU currently cannot officially designate states as sponsors of terrorism, Parliament calls on the EU and its member states to put in place the proper legal framework and consider adding Russia to such a list. This would trigger a number of significant restrictive measures against Moscow and have profound restrictive implications for EU relations with Russia…
They said they are doing like USA but: Russia is not a “state sponsor of terrorism” as it does not fit the relevant criteria, the US Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice Beth Van Schaack said on Wednesday, Nov 23. Speaking at a briefing, Schaack said that the US cannot designate Moscow as a terrorist state like the European Union.
Some MEPs know who are States sponsor of terrorism:
When the US and NATO killed civilians and children, wasn’t it terrorism?”: MEP exposes the West’s double standards with Russia
Mick Wallace called on the world community to “wake up and start living in the real world.”
Clare Daly give names to state sponsors of terrorism.
There is nothing constructive about the pot calling the kettle black. If the EU is going to start naming “state sponsors of terrorism,” let’s do it… Let’s recognise West-sponsored terrorism too, and make sure The United States, United Kingdom, France, Europea Union and their pals Israel,Türkiye, Arabia Saudi & the rest are all on the list
There is no doubt that this move by the European Union is nothing other than to rob the Russian Federation, and as always by making the rules in their favor, they do not know how long they will be able to withstand the rate of waste of money that they are investing in Ukraine.
