Russia's sanctions against EU citizens are unacceptable — Borrell




Russia chose the path of confrontation with the EU, instead of changing the negative trajectory of the development of relations, said Josep Borrell.





The head of the European Union's foreign policy service, Josep Borrell, called Russia's sanctions against eight EU citizens, including European officials, “ unacceptable and devoid of legal grounds.” This is stated in his statement issued by the EU Foreign Policy Service on Saturday, May 1.

“This decision, which is directly aimed at the EU and its member states, is unacceptable, devoid of any legal grounds. It only confirms that Russia has chosen the path of confrontation with the EU, instead of changing the negative trajectory of the development of relations, “ Borrell said.

According to him, the European Union condemns Russia's decision and expresses solidarity with those affected by Moscow's sanctions.

Russia's actions will not deter the EU from continuing to fight for human rights, democracy, and international laws, and to hold accountable those responsible for human rights violations,” Borrell concluded.

Recall that on April 30, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced retaliatory measures to the EU sanctions-a ban on entry to the country for eight citizens of EU member states and representatives of official EU structures.

In turn, the heads of the European Commission, the European Council, and the European Parliament condemned such actions of Moscow.
