You are currently viewing Russia Responds to EU Terrorism Resolution: EU Parliament is "Sponsor of Idiocy"

23 Nov 2022 18:22

After today the EU Parliament passed a resolution by a majority in which Russia was declared a “supporter of terrorism”, the Moscow Ministry of Foreign Affairs has now responded to this for the first time.

The EU Parliament, which passed a non-binding resolution on Wednesday calling Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism,” should be labeled a “sponsor of idiocy,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova suggested on Telegram.

The EU legislature passed the decision in a landslide vote in Strasbourg on Wednesday. 494 MEPs voted in favor of the document, 58 voted against and 44 abstained. The resolution brought together the drafts of three different parliamentary groups in the European Parliament.

The marking is the latest EU condemnation of the Russian military offensive in Ukraine. Individual states, including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the Czech Republic, had previously passed similar resolutions at the national level.

The move is largely symbolic, but the document calls on member states to develop a new legal framework that would make it possible to blacklist not just individuals or organizations but whole nations on terrorism grounds. Welcoming the news, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said Russia must be “isolated and held accountable at all levels to end its long-standing policy of terrorism in Ukraine and around the world.”

Moscow accused Kiev’s Western backers of ignoring warnings that NATO’s informal expansion into Ukraine was crossing Russia’s red line. Ukraine is being used in a proxy war against Russia, and as long as it does its job, the US and its allies are ready to turn a blind eye to all Ukrainian crimes, officials in Moscow said.

According to Russian investigators, the Ukrainian government is responsible for a series of terrorist attacks on Russian soil, including the murder of journalist Daria Dugina in August and the fatal truck bombing of the Crimean bridge in October. Western media reported that Washington also suspects Kiev’s involvement and allegedly “warned” Zelensky about both attacks.
