EU decides to extend sanctions against Russia over Ukraine

The Council of the European Union has adopted a decision to extend the economic restrictive measures imposed on Russia for its aggression against Ukraine.

This issue was examined by the Council’s Committee of Member States’ Permanent Representatives on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Brussels.

"The ambassadors agreed the political positions of their governments to extend sanctions against the Russian Federation, which formally expires on July 31, for another six months," the statement reads.

Furthermore, according to the procedure, the decision will be submitted for final legal approval without discussion at one of the Council's next meetings at ministerial level.
