EU to take measures to overcome global consequences of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine

"VAN" (International Desk - 24.03.2023) :: Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine has created global consequences, including a food crisis for developing countries. In this context, the EU will continue to take measures to solve this and other problems, which are a matter of concern for the entire international community.

This is said in European Council conclusions on Ukraine, published on its website, Ukrinform reports.

“Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine and its (Russia’s – ed.) weaponisation of food have undermined global food security. In that context, the European Council takes note of the extension of the UN Black Sea Grain Initiative. This initiative, the EU’s Solidarity Lanes and the Ukrainian ‘Grain from Ukraine’ initiative are instrumental in bolstering global food security. It (the European Council – ed.) stresses the need to ensure the continued availability and affordability of agricultural products for the countries most in need,” the document says.

The European Council also pointed to Russia's irresponsible actions in the field of nuclear energy security, which may also have global consequences.

“Russia must immediately cease actions endangering the safety and security of civilian nuclear facilities in Ukraine. The European Union fully supports the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency,” the document says.

As reported, the EU summit is taking place in Brussels today. The situation in Ukraine was the first issue on agenda. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the EU heads of state and government via video link.
