The European Union has not reacted tough enough on the capture of the Ukrainian vessels and sailors by the Russian militants near the Kerch Strait. Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, the Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine said that at the international conference in Romania on May 10, as UNN reported.
According to the report, the only way to guarantee the safety and stability on the Ukrainian territories is to strengthen the political, diplomatic and economic pressure on the Russian Federation, and the indecisive European Union only ‘encourages’ Russia to make new provocations.
“We call the international partners for further sanctions against the Russian ports and vessels, which are the part of the Crimean ports, as well as the companies, which are using the bridge over the Kerch Strait,” Klympush-Tsintsadze said.
According to the Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine, Kremlin is interested not on the conversation, but in securing their dominance in Europe.
“If the European Union strikes the compromise concerning the values of the international law in relations with Russia, the EU project has no future,” Klympush-Tsintsadze added.
