This summer, the European Union will provide support to the Azov region.

Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini said that the EU will provide the social and economic support after she met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi, the European External Relations Service press-service said.

Furthermore, the EU continues to expect Russia to release the 24 Ukrainian soldiers and three naval vessels that its detained since last November.

Mogherini and Zelenskyi discussed possible ways to move forward with the full implementation of the Minsk agreements by all parties.

“They rejected the recent Russian decrees entitling, inter alia, people who permanently reside in certain areas of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as residents of the Crimean peninsula before 2014, to apply for Russian citizenship in a simplified manner,” the statement reported.

Mogherini also said that the EU is ready to support the implementation of the Minsk agreements by all available means.
