European Union (EU) High Representative Josep Borrell will hold a news conference on Monday after the EU Foreign Affairs and Defence Council meeting on Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine, the EU’s strategic compass and the situation in Mali.
European Union foreign and defence ministers will discuss imposing further sanctions on Moscow, especially whether to introduce an embargo on Russia’s lucrative oil and gas sector.
On Monday, Ukraine rejected a Russian demand that its forces lay down arms before dawn on Monday in Mariupol, where hundreds of thousands of civilians have been trapped in a city under siege and already laid to waste by Russian bombardment.
Russia’s assault on Ukraine, now in its fourth week, has stalled along most fronts. Russia has failed to seize a single major Ukrainian city much less capture the capital Kyiv or swiftly topple the government of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
