Rasmussen noted that the extension of the sanctions is the only way to put pressure on Russia in the settlement of the conflict in Donbass.

"From the representatives of the Western countries, I know that their willingness to extend the sanctions is also linked to Ukraine's willingness to actually carry out complex reforms", - said Rasmussen.
