Martin Schulz assumes that EU will prolong sanctions against Russia to 2016
18:13, 6 July 2015

"The European Union has already extended  the sanctions in July this year. My answer is - yes, EU member states are willing to maintain the sanctions. And my expectation is that in 2016 unless significant changes take place, the positions of the Member States will be unchanged, and sanctions will be continued again," said Schultz in his interview to Ukrainska Pravda.

The President submits that the EU's position could change if Russia takes take steps to implement the Minsk agreements.

What’s more, Schultz claimed: "If Russia decides to change its strategy, if Russia starts to take steps to cooperate, or at least prepare for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the situation can change the very next day".

“In case Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande or Petro Poroshenko asks my opinion on what should be done after completion of the Minsk agreement, I would recommend negotiations to find the solution ( as a continuation of the Minsk agreement),” - he added.
