Dutch Parliament suspends three pro-Russian FVD MPs from sessions
The Dutch parliament has suspended three MPs from the pro-Russian FVD ("Forum for Democracy") party for a week.
This was reported by the press service of the lower house of the Dutch parliament.
"Three deputies from the FVD have been suspended from participating in meetings of the House of Representatives for 7 days from Wednesday, 20 December, with the exception of voting," the statement reads.
MPs Thierry Baudet, Gideon van Meijeren and Freek Jansen have been suspended from the meetings.
According to the board, the deputies violated the code of conduct by failing to enter information about other positions they hold in the register of business entities.
As a result, party leader Baudet and members Jansen and van Meijeren will not be able to speak during the debate for 7 days, but they retain the right to vote.
Earlier, the Netherlands allocated €9 million to support Ukraine's ability to investigate and prosecute Russia for international crimes.
