EC Speaker Maya Kosyanchik the question whether Brussels is concerned about this fact, said that the implementation of sanctions is a matter of states - members of the EU. EU official, who requested anonymity, said: "This is against the spirit of the sanctions. But there is a fine line in the absence of the trade embargo (against Russia) between performing and non-fulfillment of the law. "
