The leaders of the European Union decided to extend sanctions against Russia

The EU leaders at a summit in Brussels agreed to extend anti-Russian sanctions. About this Agency TASS said a European diplomatic source.

He said that the heads of state gave the green light for the extension of restrictive measures for six months. Officially, the extension of the sanctions would be announced before the Catholic Christmas (25 December).

Earlier, on 14 December, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that the country was able to complete the process of adaptation to life under sanctions and get on the path of growth.

A number of countries, including the USA and member States of the European Union imposed restrictive measures against Russia in 2014 and linking them with the annexation of Crimea, and then — with the conflict in the South-East of Ukraine. In response, Russia imposed an embargo on the import of products from these countries.
