Situation in Ukraine
Crisis unit meeting chaired by Foreign Minister Steinmeier (2 May)
Following the violent clashes between 18 and 20 February 2014, Ukraine is experiencing a period of upheaval. Part of its territory has been annexed by Russia in violation of international law. In the south and east of the country, there have been – in some cases violent – confrontations and also fighting between Ukrainian security forces and pro-Russian groups for weeks now.
In close coordination with Germany’s European and international partners, Foreign Minister Steinmeier is seeking intensively to bring about a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
