Deal on stricter air pollution limits: A bitter-sweet victory

The Parliament and the Council have reached an agreement on the Air Quality Directive, which sets new EU-wide action to reduce pollution limits up to 2.5 times lower than current targets by 2030. However, the deal falls short of the limits recommended by the World Health Organisation.

Death of jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny

Greens/EFA are deeply saddened to hear about the tragic passing of Alexei Navalny. His death marks a dark day for Russia and he will be sorely missed. Sadly, Navalny joins the long list of critics of the Russian regime who have died after standing up to the corruption and kleptocracy of Vladimir Putin.
