BRUSSELS (AFP) - The European Union warned on Monday that EU-Russia ties were at risk if Moscow failed to de-escalate tensions in Ukraine.

"In the absence of de-escalating steps by Russia the EU shall decide about consequences for bilateral relations of EU and Russia," the bloc said in a statement obtained by AFP after emergency talks between its 28 foreign ministers in Brussels.
