Ukraine expects the West to impose another package of sanctions against Russia in case Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s peace plan is frustrated, deputy head of the Ukrainian president’s administration Valery Chaly told a briefing on Friday.“Ukraine needs solidarity, and in case the peace plan is torpedoed, a third package of sanctions or a package of sectoral sanctions must be in place. This is our clear position. These processes should proceed in parallel,” he said.Earlier, the EU continues introduced “phase two” sanctions. It has not yet taken a decision on whether to proceed to “phase three” - trade and economic restrictions on selected sectors of the Russian economy. The very notion of “phases” or “levels” in sanctions against Russia appeared in the aftermath of an EU emergency summit that was held on March 6. The sanctions of "phase one" included the cancellation of the Russia-EU summit initially scheduled for June, suspension of the talks on slashing the visas issuance formalities, and suspension of the EU-Russian partnership agreement talks, which had not seen any noticeable progress over the previous two years in the wake of the EU’s inflexible position.
