Chemical residues in the Baltic Sea based on petitions 1328/2019 and 0406/2020 under Rule 227(2) (B9-0224/2021)

Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of the report regarding chemical residues in the Baltic Sea. Coming from Latvia, that borders the Baltic Sea, this issue is deeply concerning. A third of Latvia’s border is coastal, almost 500 kilometres long. Our fishing and seaside communities are vital and an issue such as chemical weapons and hazardous substances being dumped in the Baltic Sea pose an obvious danger to them.
The dumping has been irregularly recorded and is difficult to trace. The Baltic Sea is now considered one of the most polluted seas in the world. The chemical substances that have been dumped cause immeasurable danger to the ecosystems and biodiversity of the Sea, as well as to human health through food contamination, severe burns and poisoning on direct impact.
This resolution calls for immediate monitoring of the dumped munitions, all sides involved to come forward with information regarding the dumping, special task forces to be set up in order to fully investigate the sites, and foster national, regional and international cooperation.
