EU and Japan to coordinate restrictive measures against Russia

Within frames of the next summit "G-7", to be held in Brussels on June 4-5, the participants will be ready to discuss the possible imposition of additional restrictive measures against Russia, declared Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council, on May 7 at the summit "EU-Japan".

"The EU and Japan will continue to coordinate their position within G7, also on sanctions," said H. Van Rompuy on the situation related to the influence of Russia at Ukraine.

He also noted that within frames of the summit the parties will examine the issues of financial and economic support for Ukraine.

"We call on Russia to refrain from any steps to further destabilise Ukraine, instead to engage in a diplomatic resolution of the crisis. Further steps in destabilising Ukraine will call for additional sanctions," summed up the President of the European Council.
