The head of the European Commission warns the Russian Federation about new sanctions for aggression against Ukraine

The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, warned Russia that new, strengthened sanctions await it in the event of another act of aggression against Ukraine.

– We expect Russia to de-escalate and refrain from any aggression against Ukraine. Otherwise, the EU is ready not only to strengthen existing sanctions, but also to take new, noticeable measures, she said during a briefing on December 10.

Recall that US President Joe Biden discussed the build-up of Russian troops near Ukraine with leaders of the countries of Eastern Europe.

Earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also warned the Russian Federation against a new attack on Ukraine and said that Nord Stream 2 will face consequences in the event of an invasion.
