Boris Johnson: Britain to insist on keeping sanctions against Russia

There is no reason for easing the sanctions against Russia since the hostilities in Donbas have escalated.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said this before a meeting of the European Foreign Affairs Council on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Brussels.

"We will discuss the recent escalation of violence in Ukraine. There are clear signs of its initiator. The United Kingdom will insist that there is no reason for easing the sanctions. In any case, we need to continue to exert pressure on Russia," Johnson stressed.

In turn, Foreign Minister of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius also said that sanctions against Russia should remain in place.
