'Ukraine stays under Russian sanctions since the second half of 2012', stated Jan Tombinski, Head of EU Delegation to Ukraine.

'These sanctions did not come today, they started in the second half of 2012. Nobody spoke about them publicly until 2013. The aggression and sanctions, which Russia has imposed on Ukraine - it was the pressure to keep Ukraine from signing the agreement with EU', - he said.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the agreement on free-trade zone between Ukraine and the European Union will come into effect on January 1, 2016. The EU is also sure it will come into force.
