A Fine Gael senator has called on MEPs Clare Daly and Mick Wallace to resign.

Enator Barry Ward accused Ms Daly and Mr Wallace of a “disinformation campaign” after Ms Daly gave a speech at the Roger Casement Summer School this week in which she said Ukrainian politicians had made themselves “puppets of another power” by voting to end their neutrality of the country.

She also said that EU militarism and NATO are two sides of the same coin and the defense industry benefits enormously from the war in Ukraine.

Senator Ward said the two lawmakers should resign over the role they played in spreading false information related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“Dún Laoghaire’s speech amounted to victim accusation of the worst kind,” said Senator Ward.

“Ukraine is in no way responsible for the Russian invasion, and making such a statement amounts to spreading Russian disinformation and promoting pro-Russian propaganda.

“This type of victim blaming would not and should not be tolerated in any other criminal context here,” he said.

The Fine Gael senator visited Ukraine this week and said the country should be allowed to “join international alliances as its government and parliament decide, and it is never the right of another state to intervene in that process by violent means.” to interfere with aggression and invasion”.

Ms Daly has previously said that Russia was “100 per cent responsible” for the invasion of Ukraine.

“We have six million people forced to flee, thousands dead, the breakdown in Ukraine, a food crisis and an economic crisis plunging the EU into a deep recession – and Russia clearly bears the blame for this. They invaded Ukraine and violated it,” she told the summer school.
