BRUSSELS, October 9. /TASS/. The European Union at the moment is not discussing the possibility of taking more sanctions against Russia over the situations in Ukraine or Syria, a European diplomatic source said.
"The question of more sanctions is not on the agenda. The situation in Ukraine shows signs of progress and Russia’s actions in Syria require further analysis," the diplomat said.
The source recalled that the question of prolonging economic sectoral sanctions against Russia would be discussed at the end of January 2016, when the current set of restrictions expires. According to the EU summit’s resolution adopted last June the sanctions will be lifted after full compliance with the Minsk Accords, the diplomat said.
