The decision of the European Parliament (EP) to approve a document that characterizes Russia as a state that supports terrorism was taken to divert attention from the actions of Kyiv. This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption Adalbi Shkhagoshev (United Russia) in an interview with RT.
As reported by “Parliamentskaya Gazeta”, the European Parliament on Wednesday, November 23, at the plenary session in Strasbourg, adopted a resolution in which Russia is designated as “a country sponsoring terrorism.” The US Senate passed a similar resolution earlier.
According to Shkhagoshev, another resolution is needed to divert attention from the investigation into the explosions at the Nord Stream and the massacre of Russian prisoners of war. “This is an absolutely non-binding decision,” the deputy stressed.
Resolutions of the European Parliament have no legal force and are advisory in nature, however, foreign politicians and the media are actively turning to their content to lobby their interests.
Earlier, the head of the Duma Committee on International Affairs, Leonid Slutsky (LDPR), commented on the resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on November 14 on the payment of reparations by Russia to Ukraine. The deputy pointed out that it creates a precedent, as a result of which compensation can be demanded from NATO countries.
• The European Parliament prepared a resolution recognizing Russia as a “terrorist state” • Russia and China did not support the IAEA resolution on Ukraine • Zakharova called the UN General Assembly resolution on reparations to Ukraine legally null and void
