All foreign ministers of the European Union member states have called for the need to step up pressure on Russia in response to its aggression against Ukraine.

"All the ministers, who attended the meeting, clearly supported the need for consistent pressure on Russia and, of course, the continuation of sanctions," the Ukrainian Foreign Minister said.

Pavlo Klimkin also emphasized that the meeting with his EU colleagues was very informative and confirmed the unconditional support for Ukraine in the European community and the continued pressure on Russia.
