The EU leaders will offer Ukraine help for its regions affected by Russia’s actions in the Sea of Azov, but no new sanctions on Russia will be imposed.

Euractiv reported this with reference to the draft conclusions of the EU summit.

"European Union leaders will offer Ukraine help for its regions affected by Russia’s actions in the Azov Sea when they meet on Thursday (December 13), but no new sanctions on Russia will be imposed," the report reads.

There is no consensus in the European Union on imposing new sanctions against Russia due to its actions in the Sea of Azov, a German government official said on Wednesday ahead of the summit.

“The EU stands ready to adopt measures to strengthen further its support for the affected areas of Ukraine,” the statement says.

As reported, on November 25, Russian border ships committed aggressive actions against Ukrainian vessels that set sail from the port of Odesa to the port of Mariupol. Russian special forces fired on and captured three Ukrainian vessels and 24 sailors in the Kerch Strait.

On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a law approving the decree of the President of Ukraine on the imposition of the martial law for 30 days in 10 regions of Ukraine in connection with the aggression of Russia.
