He must pay for the damage he caused, she noted.

The European Union will not be able to resume normal relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin after he launched a full-scale invasion to Ukraine.

This was stated by the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen in interview Ukrainian TV presenter Natalya Moseychuk.

So she answered the question whether the EU is afraid of Russia and whether they are trying to “save face” for the Russian president.

“Putin is the man on whose conscience this terrible criminal war is. He is a criminal and, as a criminal, he must pay the price he made us pay. Pay for the damage he caused,” said Ursula von der Leyen.
