Sovjetski-unija-propagandni-1920x1200As a return to ‘business as usual’ with Russia is now out of the question, the EU should earmark specific funding to counter its propaganda and infiltration of EU politics and support independence movements there, say Foreign Affairs Committee MEPs in a resolution voted on Monday (11 May). EU countries should refrain from doing bilateral deals with Russia and step up their own collective efforts to withstand it, whilst retaining a return to cooperation with Russia as a long-term goal, they add.

By illegally annexing Crimea, waging an armed conflict against Ukraine, imposing illegal trade embargoes and concluding treaties with separatist regions; Russia has “profoundly damaged its relationship with the EU” and can no longer be considered a “strategic partner”. The EU must re-assess its relations with Russia and come up with a “soft-power contingency plan” to counter its “aggressive and divisive policies”, says the committee in a resolution passed by 53 votes to ten, with three abstentions.

Russia is now openly positioning itself against the international democratic community and its law-based order and seeking to redraw borders within Europe by force, say MEPs, who call on the European Commission and EU member states to earmark money for specific “soft power” projects to withstand Russia.

Novac potreban za suzbijanje dezinformacija ...

Komisija bi trebala bez odlaganja izdvojiti sredstva ili posebne projekte suzbijanja ruske propagande i dezinformacija u EU i inozemstvu, pružiti objektivne informacije za javno mnijenje u istočnim partnerskim zemljama EU, razviti alternative na ruskom jeziku ruskim medijima pod kontrolom države i postati vjerodostojne neovisne informacije publici koja govori ruski.

They also ask the Commission to program a “more ambitious financial assistance to Russian civil society”, and continue supporting Russian human rights defenders, bloggers, independent media, academics and NGOs. MEPs are concerned of the worsening state of human rights and fundamental freedoms in Russia, including crackdown on NGOs and restriction of LGBTI people rights.

… I pratiti probijanje

Oglas

Predlažu da Komisija i države članice uspostave mehanizam za nadziranje ruske financijske, političke ili tehničke pomoći političkim strankama i drugim organizacijama u EU i procjenu njezinog utjecaja na politički život i javno mišljenje u EU-u i istočnim susjednim državama.

Povežite energetske mreže

Zemlje članice EU trebale bi održati svoju kolektivnu solidarnost i suzdržavati se od bilateralnih odnosa i sporazuma s Rusijom, kažu europarlamentarci. Konkretnije, oni pozivaju države članice EU i zemlje kandidate da obustave suradnju u obrani s Rusijom i umjesto toga rade na jačanju zajedničke europske vanjske i sigurnosne politike.

To reduce the EU’s energy dependence on Russia, MEPs urge member states to interconnect their energy networks and enforce EU energy legislation, so as to create a genuine “European Energy Union” without delay. This is how to fight Russia’s use of energy “as a political and diplomatic bargaining chip”, they say.

Obnovljeno partnerstvo s Rusijom je dugoročni cilj

MEPs nonetheless reiterate that the solution to the conflict in eastern Ukraine can “only be of political nature”. They believe that “in the long run” a constructive EU-Russia relationship is “possible and desirable”, given their political, trade, transport, energy and people-to-people links and “common challenges on the world scene”, such as fighting terrorism.

The EU must be ready to resume cooperation with Moscow once it shows respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, including Crimea, implements the Minsk ceasefire agreements in full and ceases its “destabilising military and security activities at the EU borders”, say MEPs.
