He stated this during a joint briefing with Vice President of the European Commission - High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I’m sure that over four years of Russian aggression against Ukraine, it's time for the European Union to call the aggressor an aggressor and a party to the conflict," the president said.
