In the last years, we have seen many attempts by foreign actors, most often from Russia, to destabilise our democratic processes by direct or indirect financing of political parties. No matter if it concerns the FPÖ in Austria, the Rassemblement National in France, the Brexit Campaign or the Lega in Italy - Russia always follows the same strategy. They deliberately seek out far-right extremist parties to recruit players within the European Union to help them strengthen their own position within Europe. In return, the far-right in Europe can count on very generous credit lines, or campaign contributions from Russia. For the S&D Group, fighting this foreign interference undermining our democracies is essential. In the INGE Special Committee, our Members fight for closing the loopholes enabling foreign money to come in.
