Exclusive: Ukraine minister urges EU to send 'clear message' to Russia

Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin gives an exclusive interview to Agence France-Presse (AFP) in Brussels, on November 17, 2014The EU must speak with one voice to Russia over Ukraine and be ready to send a “clear message” it will impose more sanctions if necessary, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told AFP in an interview Monday. “Now it is time to have a clear message to Moscow that further destabilisation in Ukraine will trigger further steps by the EU,” Klimkin said as he visited Brussels for talks with new EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini. Any sanctions should “be a robust package,” he added, building on the economic measures agreed in recent months to target Russia’s defence, energy and finance sectors. Shortly after he spoke EU foreign ministers agreed to add more Ukraine separatists to a blacklist of people facing travel bans and asset freezes, but avoided any Russian figures or further wider economic sanctions against Moscow.
