“The further we proceed in implementation of Minsk agreements, the sooner we will be able to raise issue of easing sanctions. That’s why we should now put our efforts in this direction”, Steinmeier said.

Previously, his Italian counterpart Paolo Gentiloni said the European Union might decide to particularly or entirely lift sanctions off Russia at the forthcoming EU summit in June. According to him, assessments of Berlin and Paris will be decisive when the EU makes respective decision.
