Disinfo: European Union leadership has changed its position on the war in eastern Ukraine

Summary

The European Union leadership has changed its position on the war in eastern Ukraine and is considering a Russian plan for ending the conflict. The US Special Representative for Ukraine Mr Volker recently made such an announcement.

Disproof

The European Union position on the conflict in Ukraine remains the same eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/4081/eu-ukraine-relations-factsheet_en, . Furthermore, Volker has never said that Europe’s position regarding Ukraine has changed. In every public interview, Volker reiterates that the purpose of a peacekeeping mission in Ukraine is to ensure security in the entire conflict zone and not only on the line of conflict, but on the border between Russia and Ukraine.
