Description

EN - European Council - Arrival and doorstep by Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union and EC Vice-President on Ukraine - 12.02.2015 - Council, Justus Lipsius building, Brussels. Federica Mogherini: "It's definitely a step in the right direction, a very important one, even if we know very well that this is not solving everything ; but having good news is definitely better than having bad or very bad news. The important thing now will be to see the ceasefire entering into force on the night between Saturday and Sunday, and it will be looking at the implementation of the points that are included in the document. On our side, from the EU, we are looking already at the practical tools, the practical means that we have to make the implementation feasible, to support it, to help and sustain these efforts, and I will propose today to the Heads of State and Government some concrete measures that from the EU side we can put in place to monitor and implement the agreement."
