Spain and Finland warn of ‘serious consequences’ if Russia invades Ukrain –

Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his Finnish counterpart Sanna Marin told a joint press conference in Madrid that Russia should expect “serious consequences” if it invaded or showed military aggression towards Ukraine.

Sánchez warned about “massive, extremely serious consequences” for Russia’s economy if Moscow decides to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty, stressing that Spain and the EU favour a “diplomatic solution” to the crisis, EURACTIV’s partner EFE reports.

Sánchez reiterated the Spanish position – aligned with the EU – and the EU commitment to defend Ukraine’s territorial integrity and its national sovereignty.

He added that Madrid is convinced that respecting international law would be the best way to solve the crisis.

It is time for diplomacy, détente and dialogue, but also for deterrence, Sánchez said.
