EU identifies priorities of economic support for Sea of Azov region

The European Union has identified the priorities of economic support and assistance to Ukraine, in particular to the southern territories, the areas of the Sea of Azov region, which have been affected by the consequences of the Russian aggression most of all.

"We discussed further elements of support [to Ukraine], which will be directed to the areas of the Sea of Azov region determined based on findings of the EU mission’s visit to this region. The mission identified potential areas for further EU’s support, in particular in the field of railway links, establishment of training centers in some Ukrainian towns around the Sea of Azov, and support for small and medium-sized enterprises. These are exactly the elements that we, along with the European Commission, intend to accompany to strengthen support, especially in this region," High Representative/Vice-President of the European Union Federica Mogherini said upon the first day of the meetings at the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels.

She reminded that a broad discussion among the EU member states on support for Ukraine took place on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the events on Maidan.

"This year is the year of elections. We need further support for reforms and sustainability of their agenda. Our stance on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country is well known," High Representative/Vice-President of the European Union added.
