EU to discuss Russia on May 10 - official

The European Commission's Lead External Affairs Spokesperson Peter Stano stated on Monday the European Union's Foreign Affairs Council (FAC) will meet on May 10 and discuss the bloc's further policies towards Russia.

"The EU always prefers to work out a common answer," he explained. Stano added the same issue will be discussed at the forthcoming meeting of the Group of Seven (G7), which will be held in London from May 3 to 5.

The EU recently criticized Russia's decision to ban entry for several of the bloc's diplomats, saying it "lacks any legal justification." Meanwhile, the bloc's Ambassador to Moscow Markus Ederer described the relations between Brussels and the Euroasian country as being at their "lowest point since the of the Cold War."
