The EU has extended sanctions for another half a year against 150 people and 37 organizations from Russia and Ukraine, imposed because of the threat of Ukraine‘s territorial integrity.
It was reported by Radio Liberty’s special correspondent Rikard Jozwiak on Twitter.
He noted that the list of persons under sanctions was adjusted, and recently deceased separatists Gennady Tsypkalov (former Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed LPR) and Arsen Pavlov (a warlord, also known as Motorola) were removed from the list.

Recently, the Russian Foreign Minister said that Russia does not ask the West to lift the sanctions.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that sanctions against Russia will last “indefinitely long”.
