 US urges EU to extend sanctions against Russia

сша

The United States expects the European Union to support extension of sanctions against Russia in the next week’s vote.

U.S. Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Adam Szubin said on Thursday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"An EU vote to extend sanctions will make clear to the Russian government that economic normalization will not happen until it reverses its aggressive and destabilizing activities in Ukraine," Szubin said.

"We have worked closely with the EU to maintain economic pressure on Russia until the full implementation of Minsk, and believe strongly that this remains the appropriate benchmark," Szubin said in London.
