EU to impose sanctions on Russia if war against Ukraine continues

"We all hope the Russian Federation will fulfill the agreements that were reached in Geneva and unblock the administrative buildings in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and remove its troops, who today are acting as terrorists in Ukraine," Yulia Tymoshenko said following her meeting today with Elmar Brok, Chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs.

She said the world is united in defending Ukraine against Russian aggression. "I heard a very important response for Ukraine. Elmar Brok said that if the aggression doesn’t stop, buildings aren’t unblocked and Russian troops not removed from the Donetsk and other oblasts, on Thursday the leaders of the European Union will hold a summit to decide on the third level of sanctions against the Russian Federation. This is to stop Russian’s military actions in the eastern and southern oblasts of Ukraine," Yulia Tymoshenko said.
