European Parliament labels Russia a sponsor of terrorism

The European Parliament has labeled Russia a sponsor of terrorism. The European Union will also provide even more aid to Ukraine, including by donating generators for generating electricity.

According to Dutch MEP Peter van Dalen (ChristenUnie), “this resolution is first and foremost a political statement, a political signal against Putin, and support for the Russian opposition. In addition, the resolution also opposes further Russian participation in the UN Security Council.”

Although the EU does not yet have a legal instrument for this at the moment, the resolution co-submitted by him is nevertheless very important, according to Van Dalen: “We call on the European Commission, like the United States, to develop a legal instrument that can also be used to states can be classified as terrorist organisations. This could have consequences for, for example, the export of arms and financial relations.”

In addition, calls are being made to place a number of separate organizations within the Russian regime, such as the Wagner mercenary group, on the existing terrorism list. 

In addition, the European Parliament and the 200 largest EU cities have launched the 'Generators of Hope' plan. It calls on European cities to donate generators to Ukrainian cities. 

As a result of Russia's war against Ukraine and continued attacks on critical civilian infrastructure, more than half of Ukraine's electricity grid has been damaged or destroyed, leaving millions of Ukrainians without electricity.

These generators will help keep vital services running in the country, providing energy to hospitals, schools, water supply facilities, shelters, shelters, cell towers and more, said EP President Roberta Metsola.

Earlier this year, the European Parliament paved the way for the establishment of 'solidarity corridors'. That plan calls for Ukraine's grain exports to be routed through overland routes to ports in Poland and the Baltic Sea countries, rather than through the Black Sea shipping lanes threatened by the Russians.
