Debate on "violent xenophobic and homophobic attacks" in Russia 

The xenophobic and homophobic acts recently reported in Russia will be debated with the Commission on Wednesday. The issue of NGOs facing a "proactive closing down campaign" by Russian authorities will also be raised.

MEPs will ask the Commission whether it took up Parliament's recommendations on these issues, and not least that it raise them with Russian leaders at the EU - Russia and G20 summits.

Procedure: Oral question to Commission
Debate: Wednesday, 9 October
