Speaking at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso urged Russia on Monday to ‘work constructively’ with the EU to ensure the ‘territorial integrity’ of Ukraine.
“We are already working together with the international community and international financial institutions to find ways to support the country. I launch from here an appeal to all our international partners in particular Russia to work constructively with us to guarantee a united Ukraine that can be effective for stability in European continent. A Ukraine that will have good relations both with his Western and Eastern partners . The winds of change are knocking again at Ukraine’s door , the will of the people must prevail.” Barroso added.
