BRUSSELS, February 11, /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign ministers of the twenty-eight member-states of the EU, who discussed the situation in Ukraine at a working dinner in Brussels on Monday, do not think for the time being there is a need for sanctions against the Ukrainian authorities, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Monday.
He told reporters after the dinner the ministers attending it agreed on this.
Steinmeier said, however, that the sanctions might be an option if the Europeans saw that President Viktor Yanukovich or “his people” blocked the dialogue with the opposition.
