Speaking about the unity of the EU countries regarding the issue of sanctions against the aggressor state, Ernst Reichel stressed that Germany's position was that "it is out of question that the sanctions can be mitigated or lifted, as Russia does not comply with Minsk agreements ".
"Ukraine can further count on our support," the Ambassador of Germany concluded.
