European Union calls to stop Donbas trade blockade. This was reported by the press officer of the EU Delegation to Ukraine David Stulik on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

“We think that the blockade of railway does not meet such an inclusive approach to those Ukrainian, who are on the other side, that’s why we call to stop the blockade. We think that such conflicts have to be solved through negotiations, finding compromises and, most important, in the legal field,” Stulik said.

European Union will call the sides of the conflict to find a compromise.

“This has to be the Ukrainian decision that has to be found here, between the different sides of the conflict. As I said we will call for such a decision to be found,” he added.

Earlier we reported about Donbas trade blockade: pros and cons. The situation with the blockade shows that Ukraine does not have strong political will and urgent program to ensure its energy independence.

Since the beginning of the Russian aggression against Ukraine and erupting of Donbas conflict, Ukrainian government has repeatedly promised to turn the contact line (conditional border between territories, controlled by Kyiv and those controlled by the Donbas militants- Ed.) into inaccessible and closed cordon. An impenetrable border that would stop the “plague” of the Russian world. It would prevent Ukraine from further spread of separatism, and Russia would not have enough resources to support the occupied territories. But time has passed, and actually, we have faced a very strange situation.
