EU High Representative Federica Mogherini assures that Ukraine still remains under the scrutiny of the EU. It was stated during a joint briefing with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
"The situation in Ukraine remains one of the priorities on the agenda of the EU. The EU is more and more interested and focused on what happens at the southern and the eastern border of the Union and we remain united in our support for what is going on here in Ukraine. Tension in the east must not be spread to the south of Ukraine. And we would like to welcome the efforts that have been made by Ukraine. We will be united in our position in the work that we are doing with Ukraine," said Mogherini in her statement.
As was reported before by some unofficial sources, during this year summit of the leaders of countries of European Union (December 2015) intend to prolong the current sanctions against the Russian Federation for the next six months.
