EU needs years-long Russia strategy, new leader warns

European Council President Donald Tusk gives a joint press conference at the EU headquarters in Brussels on December 18, 2014The European Union must thrash out a strategy for Russia that lasts for many years, and looks past sanctions that have hammered Moscow’s economy, the bloc’s new leader Donald Tusk warned Thursday. Leaders at a summit in Brussels also called for the urgent launch of a huge 315-billion-euro ($380-billion) investment plan aimed at kick-starting Europe’s economy, although there were no pledges of hard cash. As the EU agreed new sanctions against Crimea, which was annexed by Russia from Ukraine in March, former Polish prime minister Tusk used his first summit as European Council president to take a longer-term view. As Europeans, we must regain our self-confidence and realise our own strength,” Tusk told a press conference after the summit when asked about Russia.
