Brussels keeps the sanctions against Russia. Lithuanian President Dalia Gribauskaite said this in an interview with one of Ukrainian TV channels, Radio Liberty reports.  

“Europe understands and agrees with the principles, inscribed in Minsk agreements, but they are not fulfilled. So, the sanctions stay in place”, the politician said.

She added she didn’t recognize the military solution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. “It’s a long path, because there’s simply no such thing as military solution, only diplomatic and political ones”.

Gribauskaite expressed doubts that Russia will agree for any sort of peacekeeping activity in the occupied areas of Donbas.
