Borrell addresses EU-Russia relations in a meeting with MEPs

Borrell addresses EU-Russia relations in a meeting with MEPs

Russia remains our largest neighbour and it remains an important global actor. Not from the economic point of view, the economics of Russia is more or less the same size as Italy. It is much bigger in surface, but economically speaking it is a medium-sized state. They have a lot of gas, and gas is becoming more and more expensive.

It will be there and this will not change overnight.
