EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy Federica Mogherini expressed the firm intention to keep European sanctions against Russia and expressed hope that Washington would do the same.

Mogherini said this during her visit to Washington on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I think that the Europeans will stay united on this issue [keeping sanctions against Russia]," the European diplomat said.

Mogherini added that she had held a series of meetings during his stay in Washington, including with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs Michael Flynn, and Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner. The EU diplomat noted that Russia’s implementation of its part of the Minsk agreements had been discussed among other things.
