KIEV (Sputnik) — Ukraine and Finland's leaders met in Warsaw on the sidelines of NATO Summit.

"Sauli Niinisto noted that he supports preservation of sanctions against Russia until it completely fulfills Minsk agreements," the statement said.

In February 2015, a peace agreement was signed between Ukraine’s conflicting sides in Minsk, after talks among the Normandy Four countries, comprising Russia, Germany, Ukraine and France.

The deal stipulates a full ceasefire, weapons withdrawals from the line of contact in eastern Ukraine, an all-for-all prisoner exchange and constitutional reforms, which would give a special status to the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics.
