The EU Member States are closely monitoring the situation in the Crimea due to worsening of relations between Russia and Ukraine after the August shooting in Armyansk, said Alexandre Polak, a Spokesman for the European Commission.
“The European Union condemns and does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by the Russian Federation. We continue to be unwavering in our support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.
Any actions that could lead to a further escalation of the conflict must be avoided by all sides; a peaceful resolution of the conflict is the only possible solution,” said the Spokesman at a Tuesday briefing in Brussels.
Polak stressed that all parties must fully engage in the complete implementation of the Minsk agreements.
