There is hardly any progress in Minsk agreements implementation, so no reason to discuss lifting sanctions against Russia. This was stated by the Foreign Minister of Germany Sigmar Gabriel, reports Deutsche Welle.

“There were no steps forward, thus we are not in the position to lift sanctions despite the fact that perhaps, anybody in Europe would like to improve relations with Russia,” Foreign Minister said.
