LUGANSK, February 17. /TASS/. The European Union, as well as EU member states, should threaten Ukraine with sanctions in order to stabilize the situation in Donbass, French member of the European Parliament Jean-Luc Schaffhauser told the Luganskinformcenter news agency.
"They [EU member states] should exert political and economic pressure on the Ukrainian government to make it begin direct talks with the actual authorities in Donbass in order to implement the Minsk agreements as (member of the Ukrainian parliament) Nadezhda Savchenko, (politician) Viktor Medvedchuk and [businessman] Viktor Pinchuk suggest," Schaffhauser said.
"The European Union and its member states should threaten Ukraine with sanctions if Kiev does not show commitment to its obligations," the European Parliament member stressed.
