The Ukrainian government appreciated the extension of EU sanctions against Russia for another six months - until the end of January 2018. Such message appeared on the Foreign Ministry’s website.

‘We’re grateful for the EU’s decision to extend economic sector sanctions against the Russian Federation for another six months, until January 31, 2018; the decision was made due to the absence of any progress in terms of Russia’s complying with Minsk agreements’, the statement says.

The Ukrainian ministry added they are looking forward to the extension of individual sanctions against those undermining this country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
