MEPs also highlighted support for efforts for a swift and impartial investigation to identify and prosecute those involved and institutions that failed to act to stop the crimes.

The resolution was approved by 319 votes in favor and only 46 against. Another 74 deputies abstained

Finally, the European Parliament made a connection between the attacks in Brasilia and the invasion of the Capitol, on January 6, 2021 in the United States.

According to the deputies, the acts are linked “to the growing transnational fascism, racism and extremism”.
