The European Union is ready to apply restrictive measures against Russia’s aggressive actions towards Ukraine, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda said after the bloc’s summit on Thursday.Current challenges required unity and cohesion from the EU, NATO and Eastern Partnership countries, Nausėda commented, adding that the EU would not tolerate aggression and threats to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its eastern neighbourhood.“We are very realistic about the situation on the Ukrainian border,” the president told journalists. “We see a clear effort to destabilise the security situation there and across the region. We need to prevent such processes.”“That is why the European Council was able to unanimously decide that, in the event of such an escalation of the conflict, we are prepared to introduce additional restrictive measures to counter Russia’s aggressive actions towards Ukraine,” he said.Nausėda also said that Ukraine could continue to count on full support on its reform path.
