The EU unanimously advocates the extension of economic sanctions against Russia,Tusk wrote on his Twitter.
Now we need a technical procedure for the approval of sanctions by the EU Council.
According to a source agency close to the EU leadership, this decision is expected next week.
As previously stated by the representatives of the European Union, sanctions without any changes will be extended for the next six months.
Recall that the EU introduced economic restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in the summer of 2014 on the background of the crisis that broke out in Ukraine and later expanded them. The leaders of the EU member states in March 2015 of the year tied their validity to the full implementation of the Minsk agreements and extend them every 6 months.
