BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Union is calling for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine, the EU’s top diplomat Josep Borrell said on Thursday.

“This war needs to stop now. I call for an immediate ceasefire. I call for immediate establishment of humanitarian corridors,” Borrell wrote on Twitter.

Borrell added the bloc is standing by Moldova, which is hosting more than 20,000 refugee children fleeing the war.
