Alexei @navalny winning the @Europarl_EN #SakharovPrize is a recognition of his commitment to defending democracy in Russia, at great personal cost. The EU continues to call for his immediate and unconditional release.
Alexei @navalny is the winner of this year's #SakharovPrize. He has fought tirelessly against the corruption of Vladimir Putin's regime. This cost him his liberty and nearly his life. Today's prize recognises his immense bravery and we reiterate our call for his immediate release

Europe today is too reliant on gas and imports. This makes us vulnerable. The answer is in diversifying our suppliers and speeding up the transition to clean energy. #EUGreenDeal is a pillar of European energy sovereignty in the 21st century. More in @vonderleyen's statement⤵️

Science has been telling us for years that it is time for a carbon-neutral economy. Now the economy is giving us another reason. @COP26 in Glasgow will be the moment for the whole world to speed up action. The EU will bring to Glasgow the highest level of ambition.

The whole world is affected by the energy prices spike. Yet there is something specific to the 🇪🇺 situation. We are too reliant on gas, too dependent on gas imports. It makes us vulnerable. We need to diversify suppliers but crucially, speed up the transition to clean energy

The EU accession process continues to be based on established criteria, fair and rigorous conditionality, and the principle of own merits. The EU is not complete without the Western Balkans. It's time we come together and unite in building a stronger Europe. #EUenlargement
