 EU extends sanctions against Russia for another six months, - Financial Times

The European Union intends to extend economic restrictions against Russia for further six months in defiance of signs of the mood towards Moscow softening in some of the bloc’s member states.

Censor.NET reports citing Financial Times.

As noted, diplomats had feared the move would spark a major political battle between states such as Hungary, Greece, and Italy, which favor a rethink on sanctions, and the more hawkish states, including Poland and the Baltic countries, which want the regime to continue.

But officials in Brussels say a big rethink on the sanctions is postponed until a summit of EU leaders set for December.

Such a decision was taken due to the stance of "the more dovish states."
