European lawmakers adopt a resolution against Russian intervention in Europe
 

 European lawmakers are very concerned about the ties between Russia and the far-right parties as well as some European governments, such as the case of Hungary. This is stated in a resolution adopted by a majority of votes by the European Parliament. 

"The European Parliament requires a broad EU mechanism that allows the control of political party financing and the measures to be taken to avoid the use of some parties and movements to destabilize the European project from within," the resolution says. The resolution also expresses concern for the "potentially hundreds of billions of euros that are cleaned daily through EUby Russian companies and individuals seeking to legitimize the proceeds of corruption".

The report urges EU member states to end the "golden visas" programs. The "golden visa" program is implemented by some European countries which provide visas or citizenship for foreigners who are wealthy. This program has faced criticism from observers since it is estimated that may be affected by corruption. The European Parliament's resolution stresses that Russia "can no longer be considered a strategic partner" and that the EU can not do business with Russia as long as Moscow does not fully implement the "Minsk Agreements" which are the basis for achieving of peace in eastern Ukraine, as well as restoring its territorial integrity. The resolution called "The Situation of EU-Russia Relations" is not obligatory, however, representing the position of the European Parliament in relations with Moscow.
