The list of MEPs, who voted against the association with Ukraine, has been published. Among them, there are representatives of Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary

Most of the MEPs, who voted against the ratification of the Association Agreement with Ukraine, are from France, Great Britain and Greece.

These are the results of the voting posted at the website of the European Parliament.

In particular, 27 French, 22 British and 12 Greek MEPs did not want to ratify the agreement.

It should be noted that more than a third of French MEPs (out of 74), a third of British MEPs (out of 73) and more than half of Greek MEPs (out of 21) voted against the association with Ukraine.

Spanish and German MEPs were a little "behind" their colleagues - 10 representatives of each of these countries in the European Parliament voted against the ratification.

The voting of the members from the neighboring countries is also very interesting.

In particular, five representatives of the Czech Republic (which is almost a quarter of the Czech MEPs - a total of 21!), 4 Polish and 2 Hungarian MEPs voted against the ratification of the association.

MEPs from Latvia, Denmark and Belgium protested against the agreement with Ukraine minimally - one from each country.

The countries, no representative of which opposed the ratification of the Association, are Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, Malta and Luxembourg.

It should be noted that the majority of MEPs, who voted against the ratification, represent the extreme "left" and "right" forces.

In particular, 46 are from "European united lefts," 24 are from the group "Europe for freedom and direct democracy."

Another 50 members are non-aligned ultra nationalists and skeptics.

In addition, two representatives of the "greens," three deputies from the European Conservatives and Reformists, one deputy from the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats and one deputy from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe also voted against the ratification.

Some MEPs were proudly showing their attitude to Ukraine in the context of Russian aggression.


Representatives of the Italian right extremists came to the meeting of the EP wearing shirts with the slogan "No sanctions against Russia"

Recall that the Verkhovna Rada and the European Parliament simultaneously ratified the Association Agreement on September 16.

535 members of the EP voted for the ratification, 137 MEPs voted against it, 35 abstained.
