The high representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, assured this Thursday that “the bombing has begun in some parts of the border” of eastern Ukraine, but stated that the EU countries will not approve the sanctions against Russia until that “the level of intensity of the aggression requires it”.

The head of European diplomacy also said that “in the last few hours” they have noticed ” a lot of misinformation from Russia to create an atmosphere of attacks against Russians in this part of Ukraine.”

“Certainly, we are much more concerned”

“And if we add to that that the Duma (Russian lower house) has voted to ask President (Vladimir) Putin to recognize the independence” of the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, “the whole package adds to our concerns,” he said. “Certainly we are much more concerned,” Borrell said.

Before attending the meeting with the Twenty-seven, the head of European diplomacy had been this morning at NATO headquarters, where the Alliance’s defense ministers assured that Russia has increased its military presence on the border with Ukraine. Borrell said that he “is prepared” to present “as soon as possible” to his European counterparts the package of sanctions against Russia that the EU has been preparing with its Western allies.
