"EP has voted in favour of a report stating that Russia can't be considered 'a strategic partner.' An amendment favoured by Greens, S&D & ALDE calling for resumption of [the] EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee, which has been suspended since Crimea annexation, failed narrowly," he tweeted on March 12, 2019.
