EU-Russia relations 'not yet at bottom' - EU envoy

European Union's Ambassador to Russia Markus Ederer said on Thursday that, while the relations between Brussels and Moscow are "deteriorating," they have "not yet reached the bottom." The existing tensions have been exacerbated by Czechia's decision to expel a number of Russian diplomats, which the union backed in a statement, although it declined to take similar action.

Ederer also warned the dialogue between Russia and the EU on climate is "hindered by the situation with the expulsion of diplomats." Both sides are expected to attend the climate summit hosted by the United States on April 22-23.
