Russia warns against EU solidarity

In the run-up to the opening of the Russia-EU summit in Mafra, Portugal, on October 26, Sergei Yastrzhembsky, who is President Vladimir Putin’s aide and special envoy to the EU, said in Moscow on October 24 that the EU’s principle of presenting a united front to the outside world is impairing its relations with Russia, Russian media reported.

He argued that “there are indeed problems that some EU member states are particularly sensitive about, and such problems are often bilateral. But because of so-called European solidarity, these problems are pushed to the level of European-Russian relations. And that is something that we generally cannot agree with.”.
