The EFA Group announces the departure of MEP Tatjana Ždanoka.

EFA MEPs are advocates for peace, dialogue, democracy and human rights. We believe that nothing can justify a military invasion violating human rights and international law. In consequence EFA MEPs strongly condemn Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. For this reason, Tatjana Ždanoka has left our group today.
