World capitals working on measures that can “hurt” Russian economy - Kuleba.

A number of world powers are developing tougher sanctions on Russia, including economic ones.

This was stated by Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba during an online briefing on Thursday, November 25, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The foreign minister noted that the tone of the signals the international community is sending the Kremlin has recently become much harsher. The European Union, NATO, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Sweden, the Baltic countries, Poland, and a number of other partners have already supported Ukraine and warned Russia against escalation.

“In a number of world capitals, specific economic measures are being worked out that could hurt Russian economy and wallets of wealthy Russians. At the same time, Ukraine is receiving a new boost in defense capabilities, new weaponry for our Army,” Kuleba stressed.

According to the head of Ukrainian diplomacy, the Kremlin is raising the stakes throughout the region, seeking to undermine the security architecture that has developed in Europe since the end of the Cold War: “You can say, (they seek to - ed.) take revenge for the defeat that occurred 30 years ago.”

“Together with its partners, Ukraine is strengthening regional security and preparing to act as a united front in the event of an escalation of Russian aggression,” the minister said.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba held talks with his French and German counterparts during a working visit to Brussels. They assured that a large-scale invasion of Ukraine would yield extremely severe consequences for Russia.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said the situation regarding the possible intensification of hostilities against Ukraine is being constantly monitored. According to the head of government, the situation on the Russo-Ukrainian border amid the latest amassing of Russian troops remains "tense, but we see no signs of an offensive."

According to the Financial Times, Western intelligence officials said there was a "high probability" of Russia resorting to destabilization efforts in Ukraine this winter amid the amassing of over 90,000 Russian troops near the border with Ukraine.
