15 years ago, on 8.08.2008, #Russia invaded #Georgia.
The invasion of #Crimea followed in 2014, the war against #Ukraine in 2022.
We can not change the past, but we have the obligation to learn and not repeat past mistakes:
Be firm against Russia, support Ukraine, stay united!
Partido Popular stopped the rise of the extreme right in #Spain.
4 years ago extreme right Vox obtained 15%, now only 12%
4 years ago Vox obtained 52 seats in Parliament, now only 33.
@ppopular increased from 20% to 33%, from 89 seats, to 136 seats.
Re A proeuroepan centre-right party is the best defence against extremes.
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro #Sanchez has jeopardised enough #Spain's EU Council Presidency.
It is time he recognises his defeat, allows the election winner @NunezFeijoo @ppopular to govern the country and successfully conclude the Council Presidency.
El presidente del Gobierno español, Pedro #Sanchez ha puesto bastante en peligro la Presidencia del Consejo UE.
Es hora de que reconozca su derrota, que permita al ganador @NunezFeijoo @ppopular que gobierne y concluya con éxito la Presidencia del Consejo.
El Partido Popular frena el ascenso de la extrema derecha en #Espana.
Hace 4 años Vox obtenía 15%, ahora sólo 12%.
Hace 4 años Vox obtenía 52 escaños en el Parlamento, ahora sólo 33.
@ppopular ha pasado del 20% al 33%, y de 89 escaños, a 136 escaños.
Un partido de centro-derecha proeuropeo es la mejor defensa contra los extremos.
Congratulations to @NunezFeijoo & @ppopular on winning the elections in Spain! Alberto Feijóo is the right person to lead #Spain! He is competent, credible and a convinced pro-European. He has all the @EPP support.
¡Enhorabuena a @NunezFeijoo y @ppopular por ganar las elecciones! ¡Alberto Feijóo es la persona adecuada para gobernar España! Es competente, creíble y un europeísta convencido. El tiene todo nuestro apoyo en el @EPP.
Re @MWlachovsky The choice is not between war or peace, the choice is between the survival or the surrendering of Ukraine.
Defeating the aggressor is the only choice.
@MWlachovsky is right.
Re @EUCouncil is copying the same amounts as in the 2023 #EUbudget, even though the situation we are facing is different, the absorption capacity in several programs is increasing and needs have changed. New priorities cannot be ignored. 2/2
Re ➡cuts to EURI interest rate payments hoping interest rates will decrease. Unlikely!
➡cuts to @HorizonEU even though it is oversubscribed & EU urgently needs more R&D funding. Unwise!
➡no margins for EU budget, ZERO capacity to react to unforeseen situations. Irresponsible! 2/3
Re ➡@EUCouncil does not take into consideration the Multiannual Financial Framework (#MFF) revision proposal even though it will create space for maneuver in the @EU_Budget.
We, @europarl_en, insist on adopting a 2024 #EUbudget that corresponds to the reality of Europe. 3/3
This week, as @europarl_en General Rapporteur for the 2024 #EUbudget, I will represent the European Parliament at the summer trialogue with @EU_Commission and @EUCouncil. I look forward to working together for a timely adoption of the Budget.

We, @europarl_en, just voted today a new resolution that demands that Council approves the accession of Romania and Bulgaria to the #Schengen area by the end of the year. #Romania has been ready to join Schengen for 12 years. 1/2
Re The opposition of any Member State is unjustified. All EU institutions and 26/27 member states support #Romania 's accession to #Schengen area. 2 independent expert missions that visited Romania last year reconfirmed that our country meets all the conditions for membership. 2/2
It is weakness, not strength, that provokes Russia. The stronger we are, the better it is for our relation with #Russia. What we need to do now is to support #Ukraine in all its needs. Secondly, as soon as it is possible, Ukraine should become a #NATO Member State.
In order to make #EU stronger in the face of unpredictable situations, we need more resources - I said today in the @europarl_en plenary. As the General Rapporteur for the #EUBudget for 2024, I say that the Multiannual Financial Framework #MFF revision is crucial.
