 Extension of sanctions against Russia in fact agreed, - Polish Foreign Minister

The leading world countries have decided to extend economic sanctions against Russia.

This was stated by Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski prior to the next meeting of the European Union Foreign Affairs Council on Monday, Censor.NET reports referring to Ukrinform.

"Informally, we [Poland] know that several weeks ago there was a meeting of the major countries that acknowledged the Minsk agreements are not implemented by Russia in full, and that's why it is natural that they [sanctions] will be extended. During bilateral talks, the major countries state that the issue has actually been settled," the Polish foreign minister said.
