LIVE NOW - Follow my address to the UN Security Council on Sexual violence and Trafficking in Ukraine #UNSC 

The Kremlin is using food supplies as a stealth missile against developing countries. This is driving up food prices, pushing people into poverty, and destabilising entire regions. Russia is solely responsible for this food crisis. Despite its campaign of lies. @UN  #UNSC 

On the 100th day of Russia’s war in #Ukraine  @EUCouncil  formally adopted the 6th package of sanctions including a ban on Russian oil. The EU is united and will do all it can to bring an end to this disastrous war.

You may leave the room, maybe it's easier not to listen to the truth, dear Ambassador#Nebenzia  @RussiaUN  @UN  #SecurityCouncil  #UNSC 

It is Russia's tanks, bombs and mines that are preventing #Ukraine  from planting and harvesting. The Kremlin is also targeting grain storages and stealing grain from areas it has occupied while shifting the blame on others. This is cowardly. This is propaganda. @UN  #UNSC 

Political agreement on credible and strong roadmap for reforms in Bosnia and Herzegovina towards our common European future.


I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit , without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.

Following PM @BorisJohnson ’s decision to pause the process of ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, and in order to avoid a no-deal #Brexit , I will recommend the EU27 accept the UK request for an extension. For this I will propose a written procedure.

Unless there is a change of heart among our British friends, #Brexit  will become a reality – with all its negative consequences - March next year. We, here on the continent, haven’t had a change of heart. Our hearts are still open for you.

I hope that all of Europe will unite in support of democratic forces in #Venezuela . Unlike Maduro, the parliamentary assembly, including Juan Guaido have a democratic mandate from Venezuelan citizens.

Looking at latest decisions of someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realise that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm.

Waiting for the letter. I just talked to PM @BorisJohnson  about the situation after the vote in the House of Commons.
