Statement by the High Representative Josep Borrell on the shelling of the EU Advisory Mission Field office

March 30, 2022

Today, the EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) has obtained credible information that the premises of its Mariupol Field Office were recently hit by Russian shelling. The EUAM office and equipment sustained major damage. No Mission members or contractors were injured.

We strongly condemn these attacks, as well as any attack targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure. We demand Russia to cease its military offensive immediately and unconditionally withdraw all forces and military equipment form the entire territory of Ukraine, as called for by UN General Assembly resolutions and ordered by the International Court of Justice.
