KIEV. June 19. UNN. The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba was greeted by a political decision of EU leaders to extend economic (sectoral) sanctions against Russia for another 6 months, because the “sanctions give a clear signal that Russia should fully implement the “Minsk agreement”. About this he wrote on his Twitter page, reports UNN.

“I congratulate today’s political decision by EU leaders to continue economic sanctions against Russia for another six months. 2014 EU sanctions policy helps to contain the aggression of Russia against Ukraine. Sanctions send a clear message: Russia must fully implement the Minsk agreements, – Kuleba wrote.

Add that sectoral sanctions are in the areas of Finance, energy, defence and supply of dual-use goods (goods that can be used for both civilian and military purposes).

The current batch of sectoral sanctions is valid until July 31. Their action should continue every six months.

Recall that due to the lack of progress in the implementation of “Minsk agreements” the heads of state and government of EU countries agreed to an extension of sectoral sanctions against Russia due to its violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
