MEPs will discuss migration or the declaration of Russia as a terrorist state

Update: 23.11.2022 00:08

Strasbourg – MEPs will today vote on a resolution declaring Russia a state sponsor of terrorism. They will also discuss financial aid to Ukraine for next year. Today’s session will begin with a debate on migration, which will be attended by the Czech Minister for European Affairs Mikuláš Bek and representatives of the European Commission (EC).

The resolution declaring Russia a state sponsor of terrorism responds, among other things, to a series of attacks by the Russian military on civilian targets in Ukraine. With its resolution, the European Parliament wants to pave the way for the prosecution of Russian President Vladimir Putin and other top Russian officials before international courts.

MEPs will also discuss aid to Ukraine, including a loan for 18 billion euros (about 438 billion CZK) for next year. Parliament has approved that the aid will be voted on on Thursday.

Together with Bek, Vice-President of the European Commission Margaritis Schinas and Commissioner for Internal Affairs Ylva Johansson will participate in the debate on migration. The discussion responds to the growing migration pressures on the so-called Balkan route or to disputes between Italy and France over humanitarian ships that rescue migrants in the Mediterranean. The debate takes place before an extraordinary meeting on the same topic on Friday, which is planned in Brussels by the interior ministers of the EU countries.
