Russiagate: allegations of Russian interference in the democratic processes of the European Union (RC-B9-0124/2024)

  Mick Wallace (The Left). – Mr President, I voted against the resolution. I found it crazy. I actually thought that it brought the Parliament into disrepute. I was here for the debate this week, and I have never heard such nonsense in all my time here.

Where does the anti-Russian rhetoric come from? I don’t like the Russian Government; we opposed and condemned the Ukraine invasion on 24 February 2022, but we also condemn every other war. The Americans killed over 400 000 along with NATO in Afghanistan; the Americans killed a million citizens in Iraq; there were 400 000 killed in Yemen, thanks to our support, but we don’t talk about it.

I have no particular liking for any one culture or country over another, but we should treat them all fairly and cut out this racism. We don’t seem to tolerate other countries and other cultures. We call ourselves the civilised people, but we’re not behaving in a civilised manner. We demonise the Chinese and we talk about a genocide in Xinjiang without any evidence, and we ignore a genocide in Gaza. I don’t understand this place anymore.
