It clarifies the RIA Novosti, the Committee of Permanent Representatives (Coreper) confirmed the Council's intention to renew for 6 months of restrictive EU measures in respect of acts directed against the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
The sanctions will finally be extended after the decision to approve the EU Council.
