The EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission Josep Borrell spoke with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on Wednesday.

Following the informal discussions of the EU 27 Foreign Affairs and Defence Ministers in Brest last week and a number of contacts with US and NATO partners, High Representative Borrell reiterated EU’s firm and unchanged support to Ukraine. He conveyed EU’s determination to continue to call on Russia to de-escalate and withdraw its forces. He also commended Ukraine for its continued restraint.

In their phone call, High Representative Borrell and Minister Kuleba exchanged views on the international diplomatic engagements in response to Russia’s attempts to undermine the fundamental principles of the European security.

They also discussed the recent cyberattack targeting Ukraine, with the HRVP welcoming Ukraine’s swift and adequate reaction. The EU stands ready to continue supporting Ukraine, including by further building up its resilience against hybrid and cyber threats.
