Because of Turkey’s refusal to join anti-Russian sanctions, even though the EU has a long history of Russia reciprocating good decisions, this is causing concern in the European Union. It was stated by Josep Borrell, head of EU diplomacy and an increasingly more important figure in Brussels for lack of another lead candidate writes RIA News.
He called the strengthening of economic ties between Moscow and Ankara another cause for concern.
The European Commissioner took the time to remind EU member states and Turkey during today’s meeting that they’re part of a customs union tasked with facilitating trade in goods that can be used by both civilians and the military.
According to Borrell, Turkey should not send or receive goods from Russia.
Borrell said that the EU is running low on weapons supplied to Ukraine. The European military-industrial complex hasn’t received funding for a long time, so it has been having trouble providing supplies this year.
