I voted in favour of the proposal to stop empty flights due to COVID-19 pandemic. Airport rules oblige airlines to operate at least 80% of their take-off and landing slots, if they do not want to risk losing them in the next season (starting from October 2020). However, the outbreak of the coronavirus oblige us to amend the regulation because current circumstances are having a serious impact on air carriers leading to a significant decline in air traffic worldwide since the beginning of 2020. In addition, the so-called ghost flights come at a great environmental and economic cost and it is our duty to stop this practice as soon as possible. I am convinced the temporarily suspending would mitigate the effects of the current crisis and provide legal certainty to the air carriers for the relevant parts of the scheduling periods.


I voted in favour of the proposal because in this emergency situation it is essential that the EU and its Member States act decisively and collectively, to contain the spread of the virus and help patients, and to counter the economic fallout. It is our duty to do everything that is necessary to protect our citizens and overcome the crisis, while preserving our European values and way of life. As part of this joint coordinated response, the EU Solidarity Fund (EUSF) can play an important role in showing EU solidarity to Member States in dealing with the emergency situation.
However, the current EUSF is strictly limited to natural disasters causing physical damage such as floods, storms, earthquakes and similar and this proposal extends its scope to cover major public health emergencies. Unfortunately, it only applies to EU accession countries. And if we want to fight COVID-19 effectively all beneficiaries of the IPA funds and all countries benefitting from ENI funding should receive appropriate financial support to contain the pandemic and mitigate its impact. I believe that the funding of other external financing instruments can also be allocated to support these countries in this crisis.


I voted in favour of the resolution on the European Green Deal as it provides for a balance – between environmental necessity, new economic opportunities and social fairness.
Looking at the natural disasters of the past few years, it is evident that the scale of climate change and environmental challenges call for immediate action. We can no longer continue with business as usual. We need to use the opportunities that lie ahead of Europe as the environmental frontrunner, to take the lead and turn this inevitable transition into a success story for the European economy. That said, I am also glad that special attention will be paid to the most vulnerable regions and affected people through the Just Transition Fund, so that no one is to be left behind in the transition.
The European Parliament has high expectations for the ambitious programme of the Commission and for its responsible, consistent and realistic execution. It cannot be otherwise, as the cost of inaction will be paid by our tomorrow.


I have voted in favour of the resolution that puts forward the establishment of Conference on the Future of Europe. The adopted documents envisages a Conference plenary composed by the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Council, the EESC, the Committee of the Regions, national parliaments and ‘EU level social partners’. Important element is that the Conference intends to include views of citizens from across Europe by organising thematic agoras that would provide input for the plenary. In addition, we have to provide a platform for participation to the countries that are in the process of accession to the EU.
The text of the resolution is balanced and proposes several issues aiming to cover the main challenges of our time: democracy and the working of the EU, European values and rights, the fight against the climate crisis, security and defence, equality, the digital revolution and employment issues.


I voted in favour of the resolution because we could not neglect the obvious reality. We are living in a climate emergency and it is our duty to provide a better future to our children. This text is a symbolic move aimed at increasing pressure on the incoming European Commission to take a stronger stance on climate change. Roughly 75% of the 184 national pledges to cut emissions under the Paris Agreement are insufficient to avoid dire global warming. But local and private sector initiatives could offer hope because immediate and ambitious action is crucial to limiting global warming to 1.5° C and avoiding massive biodiversity loss. New actions that involve citizens and all sectors of society and the economy, including industry, in a socially balanced and sustainable way are needed more than ever in order to fight and contain this threat before it is too late.


I supported the resolution because climate change is one of the most important challenges facing humanity and that all states and players worldwide must do their utmost to fight it. Serious risks of climate change are at the heart of people’s concerns and EU has the obligation to submit its strategy to reach climate neutrality as soon as possible, and by 2050 at the latest. I support the pledge on the new European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to include a 55% reduction target of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in the European Green Deal. Of course, to achieve our goal a political will is needed as well as serious financial resources. EU countries should at least double their contributions to the international Green Climate Fund. EU Member States are the largest providers of public climate finance and the EU’s budget should fully comply with its international commitments.


I voted in favour of the resolution. Thirty years ago, the convention reaffirmed children as their own beings, entitled to non-negotiable rights. Nearly all governments – with only one exception – have ratified this convention and pledged to respect, protect and promote those rights. The convention is intended to protect the right of all children, everywhere, to be free from discrimination, violence and neglect. It reaffirms that children are not just objects of protection, but that they are rights holders themselves, and they should be empowered to claim those rights. Children should be treated with dignity and respect. They have the right to be protected against all violence and discrimination, wherever they live.
Unfortunately, very often today, children are being recruited, enlisted and used in armed conflicts. They are being enslaved and bombarded. They are being detained and assassinated. Therefore, I believe that children’s rights should be at the heart of EU policies, and that the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child provides a unique opportunity to ensure full implementation thereof in policy and in practice, and to take additional measures to ensure respect for the rights of every child everywhere, in particular the most vulnerable, leaving no-one behind.


Подкрепям проекта за коригиращ бюджет относно увеличаването на средствата за „Хоризонт 2020“ и „Еразъм +“, тъй като смятам, че те са от ключово значение не само за развитието на образованието и развойната дейност, но и на конкурентоспособността на Европейския съюз като цяло.
Имайки предвид, че Комисията предложи засилване на финансирането за основните дейности за мобилност в рамките на „Еразъм +“, особено в областта на висшето и професионалното образование и обучение, както и на средствата за „Хоризонт 2020“ за постигане на европейска екологична и безопасна транспортна система, за засилване на изследванията в областта на бъдещите и нововъзникващите технологии и за технологиите, свързани с енергетиката и изменението на климата, бюджетът на ЕС следва да отрази тази необходимост.
Считам, че увеличаването на средствата по двете програми е необходима мярка, която ще допринесе за насърчаване на академичната дейност, високите постижения, проучванията и иновациите в цяла Европа.
