The meeting discussed developments in Ukraine, while it was noted that European unity must be preserved that it's necessary to exhaust all diplomatic means and channels of communication to prevent an escalation.

The leaders reiterated that any hostile action by the Russian side would have serious repercussions with a high cost and they agreed to remain in contact.
