The European Union leaders have already reached a consensus on the extension of economic sanctions against Russia for six months in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite said this before the European Council meeting in Brussels on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"As for sanctions, this issue has been already approved. All member states believe that it is inevitable. Accordingly, the necessary procedures are already carried out," the president of Lithuania said.

As we know the formal legal decision to extend the restrictive measures in the EU will be taken until January 31, 2017, when the current half-year package of sanctions expires.
