ID Group Press Release - Ukraine

The War in Ukraine: Dirty tricks of the European Parliament


The European Parliament will hold an extraordinary plenary session on Tuesday 1 March, during which a resolution on "Russian aggression against Ukraine" will be put to a vote. It should be an opportunity for the political forces in this Parliament to unite to denounce Russian aggression and support the Ukrainian people.


The ID Group had already associated itself, during inter-group negotiations over the weekend, with the Parliament's resolution.


The ID Group was prevented from its democratic participation, as some groups opposed this co-signature, only to then accuse the ID Group of supporting Russian aggression.


To leave no doubt as to its intentions, the ID Group of the European Parliament will support the resolution tabled today, which it had already formally co-signed.


The scale of this conflict and the human lives at stake are infinitely more important than partisan pettiness.
