In case of an aggravation of the situation at the borders, Ukraine can continue to count on political, diplomatic, economic and financial assistance from the European Union, but not on military assistance.

This was stated by High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, UA reports.

He reminded that the bilateral Association Agreement concluded by the EU and Ukraine covers a wide range of issues, but does not provide for the creation of a military alliance. However, the EU will continue to help Kyiv.

The diplomat noted that the European Union is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine, and stressed that the EU supports the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and are involved in efforts to protect and maintain its territorial integrity. This is how it will continue.

Ukraine can be confident in political, diplomatic, economic and financial support from the European Union” – Borrell said.
