During a press conference, EU foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said he is calling European foreign ministers to an extraordinary and informal meeting to coordinate a united response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “unacceptable” threats. The meeting is held in connection with the world leaders being in New York for the UN General Assembly meeting.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock says the foreign ministers will discuss Putin’s speech, in which he announced that 300,000 reservists are being called up. At the same time, there were new Russian threats to use nuclear weapons.

In an interview with CNN, the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, says that Putin’s new aggression may require sanctions from the EU.
