03/04/2021 – HR/VP Blog - The humanitarian situation in the Ethiopian Tigray region remains very serious. This conflict threatens also to destabilise the whole Horn of Africa. I have asked Pekka Haavisto, Finnish Minister of Foreign Affairs, to travel to Ethiopia to repeat our requests to the government and assess the situation. For the EU, helping to stop the human right abuses in the Tigray region and restore peace in Ethiopia is a high priority.

29/03/2021 – HR/VP Blog – Last week the pace of international developments accelerated. All the EU’s relationships with the world’s key strategic actors have been in play, i.e. with the US, China, Russia and Turkey. But we have also seen important developments in their relationships with each other. Many events seem to indicate the often-announced confrontation between democracies and authoritarian regimes. However, even if Russia and China seem to join forces to face the “Western world”, the future geopolitical landscape of a multipolar world is not simple.

The Council today decided to impose restrictive measures on eleven individuals and four entities responsible for serious human rights violations and abuses in various countries around the world. Together with the listing of four Russian individuals earlier this month, these 15 designations are part of the first broader package of listings under the EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime. The sanctions signal the EU’s strong determination to stand up for human rights and to take tangible action against those responsible for violations and abuses.


Сегодня Совет ЕС принял решение о введении ограничительных мер в отношении одиннадцати физических и четырех юридических лиц, несущих ответственность за серьезные нарушения и злоупотребления в области прав человека в различных странах мира. Вместе с четырьмя россиянами, внесенными в перечень ранее в этом месяце, данные 15 лиц составляют первый расширенный перечень лиц, в отношении которых введены санкции в рамках Общего режима санкций ЕС за нарушения прав человека. Санкции свидетельствуют о твердой решимости ЕС защищать права человека и предпринимать конкретные меры в отношении тех, кто ответственен за нарушения и злоупотребления.


In a more challenging global environment, the EU needs to enhance its ability to prevent confl icts and
strengthen international peace and security. With the new European Peace Facility (EPF), the EU is
taking on more responsibility as a global security provider.

В една глобална среда на нарастващи предизвикателства Европейският съюз трябва да активизира своите действия, за да подобри способността си да предотвратява конфликти и да укрепва мира и международната сигурност. С предложението си за нов Европейски механизъм за подкрепа на мира (ЕМПМ) Европейският съюз предприема още една крачка за затвърждаване на позицията си като фактор на световната сцена.


The European Peace Facility is a new off-budget fund, designed to prevent conflicts, preserve peace and strengthen international security, for the benefit of EU citizens, our partners and their populations.
