Pro-Putin voices are becoming louder in European Parliament - Strasbourg correspondent Tetyana Vysotska
Espreso's correspondent from Strasbourg, Tetyana Vysotska, notes that Slovak MPs have called on the European Parliament not to provide military assistance to Ukraine
She shared the information on Espreso TV.
"In the session hall of the European Parliament, pro-Putin voices became louder and Slovakia became more active. Today, Fico and Orban are meeting in Budapest, and under the influence of this news, two Slovak MPs from different parties, none of which is Fico's party, made a call to stop providing military aid to Ukraine, to stop it, and to end the war through negotiations. During these speeches, other MPs wondered why such messages were heard today?" Vysotska noted.
According to the Espreso correspondent, a Romanian MP also spoke and criticized Ukraine.
"She said that Ukraine is asking for help, but it is breaking the rules by not being honest in its agricultural trade. She also said that the Romanian minority in Ukraine does not have the right to speak their native language, which is certainly not true, but such messages are being promoted from the rostrum of the European Parliament," Vysotska added.
- On January 7, President of the European Council Charles Michel announced that he would run for the European Parliament in the summer, so he will leave office early. If this happens, the current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban may temporarily become Michel's successor. Michel later said that if he resigned, there were many ways to avoid Orban becoming his successor.
- On January 9, center-right MEP from Finland Petri Sarvamaa initiated a petition to deprive Hungary of its voting rights in the EU Council due to "violation of EU values.”
