“We discussed the process on the sovereignty of Ukraine and its restoration; we talked about Donetsk and Luhansk. Unfortunately, the progress is not visible. The sanctions are not abolished until Crimea returns to Ukraine,” the message said.
Earlier we reported that the Ambassadors of the EU decided to prolong sanctions for one more year. Sanctions were imposed for the illegal annexation of Crimea. The respective decision was made in Brussels within the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER) sitting.
Besides, Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu insists on the extension of the anti-Russian sanctions.
As it was reported, the European Commission offered to prolong anti-Russian sanctions for Crimea’s and Sevastopol’s annexation. The new sanctions package will take force on June 23, 2020.
