BRUSSELS, October 30. /TASS/. The European Union does not confirm reports about a possible tightening of sanctions against Russia if Moscow recognizes elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine, Maja Kocijancic, a spokesperson for foreign affairs and security policy of the EU, said in reply to reporters’ queries.

As for restrictive measures, she said they were under constant control and could be revised any moment depending on the developments.

The European Union earlier expresses regret over Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement saying Moscow will recognize the elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, the EU Common Foreign and Security Policy said on Wednesday.

Ban Ki-moon's spokesman earlier said the elections in Ukraine's self-proclaimed republics will undermine implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Elections of the heads and parliamentarians of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics scheduled for November 2 will jeopardise the peace process, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

“Any own voting in this Ukrainian territory will hamper the peaceful settlement,” the ministry’s spokesman, Yevgeny Perebeinos, said.
