The EU leaders plan to make a decision during the summit on June 20-21, which states the non-recognition of the passports issued to the Ukrainian citizens by Russia. They will also urge Moscow to release the Ukrainian sailors as Brussels correspondent of Radio Liberty Rikard Jozwiak reported on Twitter.

“Quite a lot about Russia in the draft EUCO conclusions. A call to release the 24 sailors captured near the Kerch Strait, non-recognition of illegally issued Russian passports and a call for the resumption of negotiation efforts for Minsk agreements,” the journalist reported.
