Geneva talks today will test Russia's true intentions

The European Parliament adopted a resolution on the destabilization of the eastern part of Ukraine and on the Russian pressure on other neighboring countries today.

Guy Verhofstadt is not only calling for restraint but also for extended sanctions against those individuals responsible for  provoking unrest in the region.

"What is happening now in the eastern part of Ukraine is totally unacceptable especially in the light of  recent events in Crimea.  If dialogue with Russia today in Geneva does not make Russia re-evaluate their strategy in Ukraine then the EU will have no other choice but to slap extra sanctions on those responsible to increase the pressure on Russia to relent. " 

"Its seems that Putin has learned nothing from his illegal annexation of the Crimea and continues to pursue the same policy with the same means of deceptions and propaganda. The Geneva talks that start today will be a good opportunity to test Russia's real intentions and whether they are genuinely open to constructive dialogue or not."
