EU sanctions against Russia will be extended for another term. President of the European Council Donald Tusk expressed such an opinion at a joint press conference with Finland Prime Minister Juha Sipilä, “TASS” reports.
“I think that the EU position on this issue is quite clear. We need to connect the sanctions against Russia with the implementation of the Minsk agreements”, he said.
“I am sure that we will extend the sanctions. I think that the decision on the prolongation can be made even before the meeting of the European Council. I mean on a lower level”, Tusk added.
He featured that “today it is not so controversial issue”.
Sipilä, in turn, also said that “it is clear now that the sanctions will be extended".
