MOSCOW, October 20 /TASS/. The meeting of the EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg is unlikely to produce any decisions on anti-Russian sanctions or the situation in Ukraine, Vladimir Chizhov, the Russian Foreign Ministry representative at the European Union, told Rossiya 24 TV news channel on Monday.

The EU summit due on October 23-24 is not expected to make any decisions.

"Ukraine or sanctions against Russia are not part of the agenda. They (the foreign ministers) will deal with economic issues. Much attention will be paid to the Ebola virus,” Chizhov said in his TV interview.

“Discussions /of the Ukraine crisis/ will take place but I do not expect any decisions to be passed at today’s meeting,” Chizhov added.

“It was not Russia that initiated those sanctions. It is their problem how they are going to revise or lift them. The European Union is to discuss them at the ambassador’s level late in October. But nothing of the kind is going to happen today or at the summit due to take place on October 23-24,” the Russian diplomat stressed.
