Straujuma in Brussels today for emergency Ukraine session

Mar 06, 2014
From wire reports, RIGA

Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma will be in Brussels today to be part of an emergency European Union Council meeting on the situation in Ukraine.

The European leaders are expected to discuss the situation on the ground in Ukraine, as well as decide on measures to stabilize the situation, according to the State Chancellery's communications department.

European Union is set to freeze assets held in the 28-nation bloc of 18 Ukrainians involved in violence against protesters in Ukraine last month, diplomatic sources said Wednesday.

The AFP news agency reports that Russia said Wednesday it has no authority over pro-Moscow forces that have taken de-facto control of Ukraine's majority-Russian Crimean Peninsula.

A day after US President Barack Obama said Russia was "not fooling anybody" over its role in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov insisted the armed troops in Crimea were not taking orders from the Kremlin.
