The European Parliament has approved a report reviewing EU-Russia relations. This was stated by Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba at a briefing.

According to him, Ukraine positively assesses this document and welcomes such a decision of the European Parliament.

"It is very important for us that one of the main approaches of the European Parliament in relations with Russia is the impossibility of returning to normal cooperation until Russia stops its aggressive policy and hybrid war against the EU, the Eastern Partnership countries, which includes Ukraine and until the territorial integrity of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine is restored within internationally recognized borders, "Kuleba said.

However, according to him, the European Parliament recommends that the EU prepare for further expansion of sanctions against Russia, in particular, Nord Stream 2 was mentioned.

"And it is especially important for us that the European Parliament heard Ukraine and took notice of the recent brutal arrests of the occupant authorities in Crimea Nariman Dzhelyal and four other Crimean Tatar leaders. They are also mentioned in this report of the European Parliament. The European Parliament also supported the Crimean platform." Kuleba said.
