Germany will advocate for the extension of the sanctions against Russia. Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany made such a statement during the briefing in Kyiv as 112 Ukraine reported.

"We will also talk about the connection of the sanctions with a particular state. If there is some progress then we can soften the sanctions. Unfortunately, the Minsk Agreements are not observed, if something takes place, it means only some millimeter forward, and there is a step back from time to time. Germany will stand for the extension of these sanctions," Merkel noted.
