Stoltenberg: EU sanctions against Russia should be extended
He stresses that Russia continues aggressive policy towards Ukraine
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the European Union must maintain sanctions against Russia because of its aggressive behavior towards Ukraine.
"In my opinion, it is impossible to remove economic sanctions, while Russia does not change its behavior. I believe that there is wide understanding in this matter in the EU." - NATO chief said.
Day before the German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier expressed the view that the EU should gradually lift sanctions against Russia, if there is significant progress in the peace process, and if Moscow will show the fulfilling of conditions of the Minsk agreement.
