 Putin: "Linking EU sanctions lifting to Minsk process completion meaningless"

It is meaningless to link the lifting of the sanctions imposed by the EU against Russia to the settlement of the situation in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said, Censor.NET reports citing RIA Novosti.

"Linking the lifting of sanctions imposed by the European Union to the final solution, to guiding the Minsk process to its logical conclusion, is meaningless today because, I reiterate, the ball is not on the court of Russia. However, we take this process in stride. We are confident that sooner or later it will take place - the normalization of relations between Russia and the European Union," he said.
