  Pavel Telička (ALDE), in writing. ‒ Developments in Crimea and in Eastern Ukraine have considerably deteriorated the relations between the EU and Russia and it cannot be business as usual anymore. With the adoption of this report, the European Parliament points to the need to reassess its relations with Russia. The situation is serious and I decided to support this report to send a strong signal and call on the Russia authorities to respect international law.

If we look at the conflict in Ukraine, along with the annexation of Crimea and the political destabilisation of some countries in the area, the EU cannot consider resuming normal relations with the Russian Government. But this does not mean that the EU should cut off all relations with the Russians. On the contrary, the EU needs to develop a strong dialogue and cooperation with researchers, students, SMEs and Russian civil society in general.
