EP election results mean declining support for Ukraine – The Guardian

The final results of the European Parliament elections will bring extreme right-wing political forces into the EU legislature, which will cut military and financial aid to Ukraine, if not deprive Kiev of support altogether. This was reported by The Guardian newspaper.

“Although right-wing parties have different views on Ukraine, the overall impact of the results (of the European Parliament elections. – ed.) will be negative. In Germany, about a quarter of the votes went to the parties fighting for that picture of the world, which actually means Ukraine’s capitulation,” the report said.

The newspaper emphasised that none of the far-right parties that gained a majority in the EP, the Eurosceptics, would be “foolish enough” to advocate a continuation of “a British Brexit, trying Frexit, Dexit or Nexit”. Instead, they will continue to pull the EU “to the right” from within by taking an even harder line on immigration, strongly opposing green measures and cutting support for Ukraine.

“So don’t let anyone tell you that ‘things are not that bad’. Things are bad, and they could get worse,” The Guardian summarised.

We will remind, earlier the newspaper Politico mentioned that French President Emmanuel Macron on the background of the failure of the pro-presidential party “Renaissance” in the electoral process in the European Parliament decided to make a political manoeuvre, dissolving the National Assembly and appointing new elections at the national level.
