The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmitry Kuleba, called on the European Union to increase the pressure of sanctions on the Russian Federation. According to the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, the reason for these EU actions should be a gross violation of human rights by the aggressor country in the annexed Crimea.
This is reported by the NPF, referring to Press service Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
Today, June 11, a meeting of the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of the countries of the European Union took place. Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba also joined European diplomats. During the meeting, the main Ukrainian diplomat said that the Russian Federation continued to violate human rights in the annexed Crimea. In addition, Kuleba said that the Russian Federation wishes to hold a vote in the territory of the annexed Crimea for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian minister noted that the holding of this referendum in Crimea would constitute a flagrant violation of international law by the Russian Federation.
The head of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine called on the countries of the European Union to increase the pressure of the sanctions on Russia. Kuleba noted that not only economic pressure should be intensified in the Russian Federation, but also political and military.
The Minister believes that the sanctions against the Russian Federation should be valid until the Crimea returns to the jurisdiction of Ukraine.
In addition, Foreign Minister Kuleba briefed European diplomats on the situation in the occupied Donbas. He noted that illegal armed groups controlled by the Russian Federation continue to obstruct the work of OSCE representatives in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas. The Minister also stressed that the Russian Federation was pursuing a large-scale passporting of residents of Ordlo.
