The European Union will lift sanctions against Russia after the entry of the UN mission in the Donbass
The foreign Minister of Germany Sigmar Gabriel on the sidelines of the Munich security conference, said the possible lifting of the European sanctions against Russia if the UN peacekeepers will be able to mark in the Donbass. Gabriel considers the idea of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the entry of the UN mission correct.
“We must seek a truce in Ukraine. If it succeeds, then we will begin step by step to lift the sanctions,” — said the Minister.
The Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the press about the different versions of the meeting of foreign Ministers “Norman format” (Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine), RIA Novosti reported.
Previously scheduled discussion on the settlement in Donbass will not take place, as Gabriel was forced to return to Berlin. “In detail yesterday with the foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin discussed. If the Germans are ready, we are also ready,” — said Lavrov.
