The European Commission intends to extend the sanctions against the Russian Federation on June 20 as Radio Liberty’s correspondent Rikard Jozwiak reported on Twitter.

“The EU’s economic sanctions on Russia are set to be prolonged at the European Commission on 20 June by six months,” he noted.

According to him, it is most likely that no debates on this issue will take place.

“The push to add more people on the sanctions list for the handout of Russian passports in Donbas is however going slowly,” Jozwiak noted.
