Departing head of the European Council Donald Tusk claimed that Russia is one of the main challenges facing the 28-member bloc, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"I had to publicly remind others, almost every week, that Russia is not our 'strategic partner', but our 'strategic problem'", the official said. "I was even labelled a 'monomaniac', for being so focused on this subject. But eventually, it paid off".
He also criticised French President Emmanuel Macron for suggesting a different approach in relations with Moscow, claiming that Russia could pose a threat to European sovereignty.
