The Council of Europe intends to extend sanctions against the Russian Federation in December.

This was stated by President of the European Council Donald Tusk during a meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"I offered my colleagues to discuss a common strategy of our approach to this situation in October. I hope that in December we will continue our consistent policy regarding introduction and maintenance of sanctions," Tusk said.

According to him, Europe continues discussing ways on how to provide assistance to Ukraine for the full implementation of the Minsk agreements in order to achieve a real cease-fire and peace.
