BERLIN, June 1. /TASS/. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin claims that the lifting or easing of sanctions against Russia may take place only after full compliance with the Minsk-2 package of agreements.
"The logic of political solidarity implies this: when the key aspects and agreements of Minsk-2 have been implemented, it will be possible to consider the easing or lifting of sanctions," Klimkin said after a meeting with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier. "All that must be implemented to the full."
Steinmeier earlier said that a mechanism of step-by-step abolition of sanctions might theoretically be set in motion after considerable progress in implementing the agreements, and not completing the process as such.
At the moment Berlin does not see such progress.
