Diplomatic circles of the European Union discuss extending sanctions against the former Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych. According to Brussels-based correspondent of Radio Liberty Rikard Jozwiak, the ousted politician and 15 of his aides might face broader restrictions against them until early 2018. The decision is likely to be made already next month.

Previously, in September 2016, the EU court partially cancelled the sanctions against Yanukovych.

Viktor Yanukovych, the president of Ukraine in 2010-2014, fled the country and escaped to Russia – after the victory of pro-European activists in the Revolution of Dignity in February 2014.
