Situation in Belarus

17-09-2020
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favor of the Resolution because of violation of the fundamental rights in BY after 9 August elections, huge pressure against the political opponents, severe beatings of peaceful demonstrators. I abstained of the amendment regarding the World Ice hockey 2021 championship in Minsk and Riga, because it would automatically punish our neighbors in Latvia.

Situation in Russia, the poisoning of Alexei Navalny

17-09-2020
Written explanations of vote

I abstained on the Resolution as a whole for three reasons: 1) Poisoning of Mr Navalny is a huge tragedy, but we do not know who did it. 2) EP asks in the text of Resolution to stop the Norstream-2. 3) I am against economic sanctions in general, because I do not see any single time when sanctions brought the result. Diplomacy and a way of dialogue is the only thing can bring more understanding between RU and EU. The final text of the Resolution of EP does not serve to progress in our relations.

Implementation of the EU Association Agreement with Georgia (A9-0136/2020 - Sven Mikser)

16-09-2020
Written explanations of vote

. ‒ I voted in favour of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement progress report. The EU is the main trade partner for Georgia, and Georgia is the most progressive country in the process of reforms among the three post-Soviet countries which signed and ratified Association Agreements with the EU in 2014: Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. I fully support the idea of bringing Georgia closer to the EU and the reforms in Georgia supported by the EU and the international community, in particular, the constitutional and electoral code amendments in accordance with OSCE/ODIHR recommendations, which will lead Georgia to a more proportional electoral system for the upcoming elections.
