We will discuss ukraine. This is the main issue on the agenda today. We will for sure, discuss the sanctions, but not only the sanctions, because we all know very well that if we work only on that and not on the other two tracks, even sanctions will not work. We need to work more on the reforms of ukraine and I will start right now meeting minister clinking, we will sign an agreement that will allow the european union to start a mission to assist the ukrainian authorities on restructuring the civilian security of the country.
We will start from december 1st the mission, but we will also discuss about the relations with russia and the dialogue with russia to get to a solution of the crisis. We will work. We will discuss about what is the best option today for reacting to the so-called elections of the 2nd of november. That we said all are illegal and legitimate and might require some reaction from the european union side. We will have an open discussion about that, but, as I said, sanctions in themselves are not a target are not an objective.
They can be an instrument if they come together with other measures, and I think it's time that the european union and the ministers concentrate also on the other issues that we have to build for having a complete strategy, and that means on one side asking the ukrainians to commit again to reforms and to find the ways to better assist them on reforms, because the best way of getting ahead is making ukraine a success, and this has to be our focus mainly and also how to relaunch or how to engage in a dialogue with russia as european union.
It should be a variety of sanctions, whether if it's possible, I don't know we will discuss but, as you said, targeted measures against individuals. It's a must, I believe, because they're working they have effect in spite of some denials, but this is really something we really can make a difference.
What we need to look at in terms of perhaps an increase of sanctions as far as names of individuals are concerned, or entities or corporate companies are concerned, it's unlikely that there will be any weakening or lessening as to whether or not we will step up the sanctions uh in in in the circumstances.
Basically, about rebuilding almost from scratch, maybe even worse than scratch, the uh a very large sector of the ukrainian state- and we get uh to this with a very serious uh uh determination that will help the ukrainian government. We believe that this is, however, difficult and, however complicated it's a historical moment for the ukrainians to seize and build the state, as it should be.
