EU indecisiveness is partly to blame for the current crisis in Ukraine, Slovenian President Borus Pahor has said, warning that Russia was intent on geopolitical expansion into the Western Balkans.

In comments made in the Slovenian capital after his meeting with the Chairman of Bosnia's tripartite presidency, Pahor said that “uncertainty and distrust” toward Ukraine and absence of a “comprehensive vision” on EU-Ukraine cooperation were among the reasons why the conflict in Ukraine escalated, Ukraine Today reports.

The Slovenian president also urged the EU to be more committed to Bosnian interests in order to prevent Russia from carrying out there a similar scenario to the one it has been performing in Ukraine over the past year.
