Russian President Vladimir Putin is putting pressure on the European Union in several areas - migrants, troop movements and gas, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated on the Ukraine 24 TV channel.

"As far as I know, President Putin sent the German chancellor to Lukashenko, saying that he only needed to have a direct line of contact and resolve the issue with him. There were no ultimatums. But in general, we must understand that the pressure that Russia is now exerting on several fronts of the hybrid war is one of the tasks of Nord Stream 2 certification. This factor is present in the game that has now unfolded, and it is very dangerous," the minister said.
