It added that 215 deputies supported the decision and 46 voted against it. Among the legislators who objected the decision were mainly members of the pro-Russian opposition group Five Star Movement.

With this decision, the parliament allowed the government to provide military aid to Ukraine through inter-ministerial resolutions, although according to the current Italian law, this requires the consent of the legislators.
