The EU will keep on addressing the Kremlin so that Russia puts pressure on militants fighting the Ukrainian troops in Donbas. Ian Borg, Secretary of the European Parliament said this during the ongoing parliamentary debates about the current situation in Ukraine.
‘We’ve got to provide powerful European assistance to the locals… to prevent any sort of humanitarian disaster; to see that people and goods can freely move through the division line. These are the basic things necessary to prevent even more serious crisis. OSCE and humanitarian missions should enjoy access, which is the basic thing. We’ve made up our minds, and we continue to walk this path. We will keep on addressing Russia so that it uses its influence to see to it that separatists comply with Minsk agreements,’ Borg said.
Today, the European Parliament considers the current humanitarian and security situation in the war-torn eastern Ukraine.
