EU’s Borrell says no Ukraine negotiations under pressure from Russia

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said that Moscow’s massive build-up and movements near Ukraine border “are part of the pressure”.

The European Union will not negotiate with Russian authorities over the fate of Ukraine so long as Moscow is massing troops at the country’s border.

The statement came from EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, ahead of a meeting of EU defense and foreign ministers on Thursday.

“Russian movements are part of the pressure,” Borrell said, insisting that there “should not be negotiation under pressure.”

“There will not be any decisions taken today because this is an informal meeting”, Borrell added, though he indicated that a political statement is likely.

The meeting comes after tense negotiations between US and Russian officials in Geneva on Monday.

“We have received assurances that nothing will be decided nor negotiated without the Europeans, and the coordination with the Americans is absolutely excellent,” Borrell said.
