This issue has been put on the agenda of the meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU Member States at the Council of the European Union, an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels learnt from the governing institution of the EU.
"The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 6. The extension of sanctions against the individuals who encroach on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine as well as against some institutions and companies was put on the agenda. It is expected that the restrictive measures will be extended without discussion," said the representative of the Council of the European Union.
The restrictive measures provide for introduction of visa bans on trips to the EU countries and freezing the assets.
As reported, the EU’s sectoral economic sanctions against Russia came into force for the next six months on August 1. These restrictive measures are tied to the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements.
