EU Officials Privately Considering Shift to Less Combative Approach to Russia, Report Says

The European Union may be having a change of heart in its rhetoric towards Russia, with some of the most senior executives in Brussels allegedly advocating a softer approach, Bloomberg reported on Saturday, citing sources familiar with a private meeting recently hosted by EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell.

According to the media outlet, the Monday dinner was attended by EU Ambassador to Russia Markus Ederer and other senior officials, who reportedly proposed to develop a new plan on Russia, claiming that Europe's stance on Moscow was outdated and too focused on the Ukrainian conflict.

The report noted that such statements could lead to disagreements with some EU member states which maintain sanctions over the 2014 Crimea reunification with Russia and the situation in eastern Ukraine.

Note the use of the word :reunification" as opposed to "annex."
