"The relations between the European Union and Russia are not improving," EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said Monday in a video address ahead of an informal online conference of the EU foreign affairs ministers.
"[We will also discuss] the situation on the Ukrainian border with the deployment of Russian troops. It is a very dangerous situation, and we call on Russia to withdraw their troops from the Ukrainian border. All in all, the relations with Russia are not improving. On the contrary, the tension is increasing in various areas," he noted.
