LUXEMBOURG, October 20. /TASS/. The EU’s Foreign Affairs Council will hold a session on Monday to assess the fulfillment of the Minsk accords on the ceasefire in Ukraine and decide on a possible review of sanctions against Russia, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said on Monday.
"We’ll analyze the situation and decide what our next steps will be," Ashton said after arriving in Luxembourg at a meeting with the foreign ministers of the 28-nation bloc.
The EU said that the observance of the truce between self-defense militias in the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions and the pro-Kiev military, Russia’s practical efforts towards achieving stabilization in Ukraine and the fulfillment of the Minsk ceasefire accords will be the key factors for the EU’s partial or full lift of sanctions against Russia.
