G7 leaders stress, that possibility of lifting anti-Russian sanctions fully depends on complete implementation of Minsk deals by Moscow, reports Deutsche Welle.

The decision on extension or elimination of the round of sanctions will be approved at the upcoming G7 meeting in Japan scheduled for May 26-27.

The currently imposed anti-Russian sanctions expire at the end of July 2016.

Earlier, the U.S. Department of State assured, that sanctions against the Russian Federation will be extended in the nearest future.
