European diplomats are preparing a tough package of measures to deter Russia in the event of an invasion in Ukraine.

The Foreign Minister clarified that this was the main topic of the two-day talks in Riga and Stockholm.

The measures will come in three parts, but the final version, according to Kuleba, is still being developed.

“The first direction is a clear communication through all channels that the military operation on the territory of Ukraine will have irreparable consequences for Russia. The second is development of a sanctions package that will be applied immediately if Russia succeeds in the military operation: sanctions for it will be very tough. And the third direction is deepening of military-technical cooperation with Ukraine to strengthen our defense capabilities” – said the Minister.
