Headline: Ulla Jelpke: Vom Regen in die Traufe – Flüchtlingslager Idomeni wird geräumt

“Die Menschen in Idomeni wurden offenbar schon seit geraumer Zeit faktisch ausgehungert. Freiwillige Helfer wurden anscheinend daran gehindert, das Lager zu betreten. Die Lebensmittelversorgung wurde ebenfalls stark eingeschränkt. Und nun werden die Schutzsuchenden mit einem riesigen Polizeiaufgebot dazu gezwungen, ihre Hoffnung aufzugeben und sich in Lagern einpferchen zu lassen, in denen es wohl weder eine ausreichende medizinische Versorgung, noch Zugang zu Asylverfahren oder die Möglichkeit gibt, Familiennachzug zu beantragen.

Es ist eine Schande, dass es so weit gekommen ist. Deutschland und andere EU-Mitgliedstaaten hätten diese Flüchtlinge aufnehmen müssen. Schließlich wurde bereits 2015 verbindlich zugesagt, Italien und Griechenland mit der Aufnahme von insgesamt 160.000 Flüchtlingen zu entlasten. Diese Zusage ist bislang vor allem ein Lippenbekenntnis geblieben – von Oktober 2015 bis Ende April 2016 hat Deutschland im Rahmen des europäischen Relocation-Programms gerade einmal 37 Schutzsuchende aus Griechenland aufgenommen.”

Sevim Dagdelen: Wohnsitzauflage verhindert Integration

Headline: Sevim Dagdelen: Wohnsitzauflage verhindert Integration

„Flüchtlinge sollen in Gegenden gezwungen werden, in denen sie keine Perspektive haben, weil Arbeitsplätze und Infrastruktur fehlen. Eine solche Wohnsitzauflage ist das Gegenteil von Integration. Sie führt zu Ausgrenzung und Ghettoisierung.

Für die Integration der Flüchtlinge ist eine soziale Offensive notwendig, die Kommunen und Städte in die Lage versetzt, strukturschwache Gebiete zu fördern. DIE LINKE fordert ein Ende des organisierten Staatsversagens im Hinblick auf Jobangebote und bezahlbaren Wohnraum. Wir brauchen ein ausreichendes Integrationskursangebot, das Bedarf und Interesse der vielen Migranten gerecht wird.”

Verkhovna Rada Chairperson Andrii Parubii congratulates Ukrainians on Europe Day

Headline: Verkhovna Rada Chairperson Andrii Parubii congratulates Ukrainians on Europe Day

Dear compatriots,

I sincerely congratulate you on Europe Day!
This is a special day for the Ukrainians. Two years ago during the Revolution
of Dignity the Ukrainian people proved that Ukraine is an independent European
state. We are part of the European civilization.

Europe is impossible without Ukraine.

Medieval Ukrainian soldiers many times
united with the Europeans in their fight against their enemies. Today at the
eastern border of Ukraine, our sons defend European values and the whole world
from the present-day aggressor.

We hope for active partnership with our
European friends. Ukraine has never abandoned the idea to leave its European
family. This is our joint civilization cradle.

The Ukrainians have proved their commitment
to become a part of the European Union. I believe that Ukraine should deepen
its cooperation with the most democratic and free European neighbors to
consolidate security and economy.

I think that the most successful is the
cooperation in the Baltic-Black Sea union with the participation of the
Republic of Estonia, the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Poland, Ukraine
and Georgia. This regional union is in no way offered as a counter to the
European Union as it remains an integral part of it. The Baltic-Black Sea union
is our historic and geopolitical reality and a prospect.

I sincerely congratulate all the people’s
deputies, experts and especially Ukraine’s European friends for the great job
they have done. Despite political barriers, Russia’s military aggression in
Crimea and Donbas, step-by-step we are getting closer to the full European
integration.

Ukraine is Europe!
