On January 10, the Russian occupants opened fire in Donbas twice. In the vicinities of Pisky, the enemy fired mounted anti-tank grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms.
Earlier, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell warned Russia of the huge consequences and high price of any further aggression against Ukraine. This was discussed during his joint briefing with Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba in Stanytsia Luhanska as the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported.
"Our main interest, our main concern, our main goal is to try to de-escalate tensions through these talks and others that will follow. But also through strong support and a strong position of support for Ukraine. These things have to go side by side. A desire to de-escalate tensions through dialogue, to avoid increasing tensions, to look for solutions, but with strong support and a strong commitment that any military aggression against Ukraine would have huge consequences and a serious cost," Borrell said.
