Resolution Of the European Parliament
March 11, 2014 18:23


The Members of the European Parliament signified disapproval of Russia's actions in the Crimea and expressed support for the new Ukrainian authorities.

The European Parliament resolution adopted on Thursday notes that the Crimea is an inseparable part of the territory of Ukraine and “was recognized as such by the Russian Federation and the international community”. The authors of the resolution called for the solution to the crisis, “the withdrawal of all armed forces illegally staying in the Ukraine”, demanded “full respect for international law and obligations arising out of the conventions in effect”.

The European Parliament stressed it that the territorial integrity of Ukraine was guaranteed by Russia, the U.S. and Britain in the Budapest memorandum signed with Ukraine. MEPs also pointed it out that, according to the constitution of Ukraine, Crimea could only organize referendums on local issues, and not concerning the change of the internationally established borders. In this regard, the European Parliament stated that “a referendum on incorporating (Crimea – Interfax) to the RF will be regarded as illegal”. At the same time the European Parliament stated that in case of the absence of resolution on the situation in Crimea the EU should promptly adopt such  measures as an embargo on arms and dual-use technologies, restricting visas, freezing of assets, prevention of money laundering for a number of individuals who, as they believe in the EU, are  involved in the decision-making process “associated with the invasion of the Ukraine”, and the measures concerning Russian enterprises and their branches, especially in the energy sector, obliging them to fully respect the EU legislation.

The position of Russia regarding the Crimean referendum was announced by the presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov on March 7: he demanded not to suspect Moscow of the participation in the protest actions in the South-East of Ukraine and the Crimea. “What is happening in the East (of Ukraine) and in the Crimea has no relation to the Russian Federation. These are neither man-made processes, nor, moreover, the processes that can be the consequences of some actions of Russia”.
