European Parliament Urges United Front on Russia

The European Parliament adopted a non-binding resolution on June 10 that assailed Russian aggression in Ukraine and appealed for European Union unity in the face of Kremlin policies aimed at dividing the continent.
 
The resolution, adopted by a 494-135 vote with 69 abstentions, urged the 28-member European Union to take steps to counter Russia’s vast propaganda apparatus, especially state-controlled television channels. In addition, the resolution called for broader transparency concerning foreign funding for politically related activities, including the creation of an EU-wide mechanism “to monitor financial, political or technical assistance provided by Russia to political parties and other organizations in the EU and to assess its [Moscow’s] influence over [European] political life and public opinion,” a European Parliament statement noted.
