Borrell condemned - in an article in the British newspaper "The Guardian" - the Russian military operation that began in Ukraine last Thursday.

He explained that the Russian president is currently violating the basic principles of peaceful coexistence between human beings, stressing the need for solidarity, solidarity and expressing a frank stance towards Russian practices.
