A Belgian MEP (Greens) Petra De Sutter who advocated and voted for the return of Russia to PACE last month now sits in the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee as a substitute.
From her interview at the Council of Europe follows that she is not per se pro-Russian but she rather believes that appeasing Russia is the best solution to the appetite of the latter.
In fact, the ideology of Greens is based on the rule of law and rule-based society. Greens do not even think “out of this box”, do not even assume that country that has never undergone the punishment for crimes against humanity, country whose power elites accuse liberal democracies in attempts to control Russia through the concept of human rights, may reject this concept as such.
Hopefully, the presence of Mrs. De Sutter in the Delegation will be eye-opening to her and her colleagues in terms of Putin’s true intentions about breaking the West by its own means.
