Borrell calls on the European people"strategic patience" Under sanctions against Russia

European Union Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell urged European nations to show strategic patience until sanctions against Russia prove effective, in light of growing complaints from Europeans about their impact on them.

“The sanctions imposed by the European Union and its partners will increase their impact on the Russian economy,” Borrell said. “We need strategic patience until Russia stops its aggression and Ukraine has the opportunity to regain its full sovereignty.”

He stressed that Russia’s success in its military operation would mean “the destruction of Western democracy and the foundations of the existing international order.”
