The EU needs to send Russia a clear message about possible further sanctions
Release Date: 05 February 2019
The European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee has approved a Report on EU-Russia relations.
Sandra Kalniete MEP, Vice-Chair of the EPP Group, wrote the Report which lists a number of Russian actions that violate international law, including assassinations on European soil using chemical weapons allegedly carried out by Russian intelligence agents.
She explained how important it is for the EU not to engage with Russia if it violates international law and to maintain or even strengthen sanctions if it continues its unacceptable international behavior. But we must also be open to dialogue in a selective way, in the areas where cooperation is necessary or explore a new framework for EU-Russia relations if Russia improves its behaviour.
