Nationalists Defy EU on Russia Abuses

Anti-EU parties including UKIP have voted against a European Parliament resolution, which condemns Russian human rights abuses.
The strongly-worded, non-binding resolution was passed by a majority of MEPs. It called for a ban on funding of political parties in the EU by non-EU "political or economic stakeholders".
UKIP members, along with nationalists from France, Italy and some other countries, opposed the European Parliament resolution.
