European Parliament approves resolution on Russia

The European Parliament has approved the resolution on Russia with calls for sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. 569 members of the European Parliament voted for approval of the resolution, with 67 against the approval.

The European Parliament "Demands that the EU should reduce its dependence on Russian energy, and urges the EU institutions and all Member States, therefore, to stop the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and to demand a stop to the construction of controversial nuclear power plants built by Rosatom," the document says.

This resolution of the European Parliament, just like all others, is advisory by nature and is not binding on EU institutions.
