On Thursday, December 10, the European Union intends to extend economic sanctions against Russia for another six months at its summit in Brussels. This was reported to the Polish Press Agency (PAP) by a source in the EU, Radio Poland reports.

"Despite recent statements, especially in EU business circles, to suspend, limit or lift sanctions against Russia, Russians are constantly giving reasons to extend them," said Ryszard Czarnecki, Chairman of Delegation to the EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee and MEP.

According to him, EU leaders will unanimously vote for the continuation of restrictive measures against Russia. The sanctions apply to the financial, energy, defense, and dual-use sectors.

As we reported earlier, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba believes that there is still no fundamental need to introduce Ukrainian sanctions against Belarus.

If we take the current situation in Belarus as a starting point, then I am still opposing the introduction of any economic sanctions against Belarusian companies or sectors of the economy. We have fundamental political disagreements with Belarus, but as of now, I emphasize - as of now, I do not see the fundamental need for economic sanctions," he noted.
