Lavrov said that Russia will lift sanctions against the EU

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov during the Munich security conference said that the desire to link the implementation of the Minsk agreements only with Moscow with the lifting of sanctions is illogical. Therefore, the Russian Federation will remove the sanctions against the European Union precisely then when you see progress in the implementation of the agreements with Ukraine.


“We also want the Minsk agreements to be fulfilled, and we are their sanctions against the EU will not take off until the Minsk agreements are not fulfilled, it is also necessary to understand,” — said Lavrov.


According to the head of the Russian foreign Ministry, the reason for the failure of the Minsk agreements “are well known in Paris, and in Berlin, and, I hope, in Washington.”
