MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. The European Union is still unprepared for reconsidering its unfriendly policy towards Russia or for making an impartial evaluation of actions by the Kiev authorities, which have resumed massive artillery bombardments, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
“The discussion of Russia-EU relations at the EU Foreign Affairs Council on January 19 merely confirmed that the European Union remained unprepared for adjusting its unfriendly policy or making an impartial evaluation of actions by the Kiev authorities, which in violation of the achieved agreements have resumed combat operations along the disengagement line in the south-east of Ukraine and started massive artillery bombardments of communities in that part of the country,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The EU foreign ministers held a meeting in Brussels on January 19. The EU’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Federica Mogherini, said that it was too early to speculate about a normalization of relations between the European Union and Russia, but that Brussels was interested in a political dialogue with Moscow on key issues of international relations. She added that Brussels was not going to revise its policy towards Moscow for the time being.
