Санкции против России

Cyprus and 4 other EU member States are supporting the softening of the sanctions against Russia.

The head of German Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that this issue is directly linked to the Minsk Agreements in relation to Ukraine.

Steinmeier has confirmed last week that there is a very strong resistance on the issue of sanction and it will be very difficult to reach a consensus on this matter. During the last German-Russian Forum in Berlin, the politician has encouraged everyone to think about the gradual removal of sanctions.
