Kuleba, Baerbock discuss sanctions against Russia, arms supplies

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock at a meeting in Prague discussed the eighth package of sanctions against Russia and further arms supplies to Ukraine.

Kuleba wrote this on his Twitter account, Ukrinform reports.

"Met in Prague with my counterpart and friend Annalena Baerbock. We discussed the eighth EU sanctions package, visa ban for Russians, and further arms deliveries to Ukraine. Russian energy blackmail is part of its war on Europe and must be met with a strong and unified European response," he wrote.

The foreign ministers of the EU countries are holding an informal meeting in Prague on August 31 to discuss restrictions on tourist visas for Russian citizens, as well as the eighth package of EU sanctions against Russia.

Ahead of the informal meeting, Germany and France said they did not support the visa ban for Russia.

Ukraine calls for the EU countries to introduce a complete ban on issuing tourist visas for Russian citizens, in particular because Russians' trips to Europe for ten years have not had any positive impact on Russian society.
