Klimkin calls on the West to put more pressure on Russia

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin says that the West should put more pressure on the Kremlin following the nerve agent attack in the UK.

The Ukrainian foreign minister stated this in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

“So, fundamentally, there are no red lines here. It's about a comprehensive and coordinated answer. Without such [an] answer, without a kind of platform for the whole trans-Atlantic community — and I understand Ukraine is an important part of the trans-Atlantic community — Russia will try to meddle in the democratic institutions … So we need a tough coordinated answer to the Russian threat,” said Klimkin.

The Ukrainian foreign minister also offered that more targeted sanctions could be introduced.

“But there are other measures; there could be more targeted sanctions. There could be more political pressure. There could be attempts to counter Russian unconventional threats. It could be about energy, it could be about cyber, it could be about many issues,” Klimkin said.
