BRUSSELS, January 25. /TASS/. The European Union may organise shortly an emergency Council on Russia at the level of foreign ministers, however it is not likely to adopt additional sanctions against Moscow, a source in European institutions told TASS on Sunday.
“Organisation of the Council is being discussed now. The meeting may be organised, though it is unlikely the ministers will decide to make tougher the sanctions against Russia. Most likely, they will just publish a statement,” the source said.
Earlier, Latvia, which currently chairs the EU, called on the community to organise an emergency meeting of the Council at the level of foreign ministers on the situation in Ukraine.
