EU foreign ministers addressed the situation in the Azov Sea ahead of a Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Brussels on Monday.

Germany’s Heiko Maas addressed hopes that both sides of the Azov Sea dispute could contribute towards the de-escalation of the situation.

Didier Reynders meanwhile said that the EU was keeping an eye on issues related to freedom of navigation in the Azov Sea and in the passage to the Black Sea.

“We are looking at a way to exercise better pressure on the Russian Federation,” he said.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Give back the crimean region to the Ukraine. It’s 3 ships and personnel and the 2 regions of Georgia it stole. If not the European Union the United States and all it’s allies in should entirely stop doing business with Russia.

Take two to tango: no one can put in a corner a country like Russia, and call it an enemy without filling some discomfort.
Why don’t we make friend with Russia, what do we have to fear?
Or do we have to have a boogy man so we can spend billions on arms to destroy the planet?
While poor people cannot afford to go to hospital for a simple operation.
The government is not for the people they have forgotten their dudy to the individual.
