President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko thanked the representatives of the Member States of the EU to maintain a unanimous decision to extend sanctions against Russia.
On his page on Facebook Ukrainian president noted that a serious diplomatic work has been done. In particular, visits to Brussels, Paris, negotiations with Berlin, and a number of other important meetings.
According to Poroshenko, the skeptics expected another result, but in spite of their words the decision on maintaining the extension of sanctions was made unanimously by all members of the EU. He believes that such a decision should be an incentive for Russia regarding the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
