“Continue to ensure, in accordance with the provisions of decree law 14/2022, the necessary and wide involvement of the Chambers, in the manner provided therein, on the occasion of the most important international summits concerning the war in Ukraine and the support measures for Ukrainian institutions, including the sale of military supplies “. This is the passage on which the majority forces have found agreement in the text of the resolution on communications by Prime Minister Draghi. The text undertakes, among other things, the government to “demand, together with its European partners, from the Russian authorities the immediate cessation of war operations and the withdrawal of all military forces illegitimately occupying Ukrainian soil, with multilateral initiatives or bilateral agreements useful for a military de-escalation that brings about a change of phase in the conflict, while increasing diplomatic efforts aimed at finding a peaceful solution based on respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and the principles of international law “.
Other commitments requested of the government – in the text of the joint resolution – are that of “demanding, together with European partners, the immediate cessation of war operations and the withdrawal of all military forces illegitimately occupying Ukrainian soil, with initiatives multilateral or bilateral instruments useful for a military de-escalation that brings about a change of phase in the conflict, while increasing diplomatic efforts aimed at finding a peaceful solution based on respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and the principles of international law “.
The second point recalls “the recent trip to Kiev of presidents Draghi, Macron and Scholz”, for which it is asked to “strengthen the role of Europe in the multilateral framework, continuing the commitment to act as a key actor for mediation between the parties, in synergy with other countries already active on this front and through every international and bilateral diplomatic action useful for the achievement of a ceasefire and the successful conclusion of a negotiation process “. The majority stresses the need to “guarantee support and solidarity with the Ukrainian people and institutions, legitimized by art. 51 of the United Nations Charter – which establishes the right to individual and collective self-defense – confirming the role of Italy in the context of multilateral action, starting with the European Union and the Atlantic Alliance “. There is also a passage on “food security on a global level, through safe corridors and port demining”, support for “applications for EU membership of Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova and Georgia”. On the economic level, the executive is urged to “compensate the imbalances for the states due to the economic consequences of the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia and strengthen policies in favor of families and businesses in difficulty due to the effects of the conflict”. Furthermore, “finalize the RePowerEU initiatives that achieve the diversification of energy sources in Europe and counteract the increase in energy prices” and among other things “the introduction of a cap on gas prices and the decoupling of price of energy between renewables and traditional fossil sources “.
