TALLINN (Sputnik) – EU anti-Russian sanctions will be extended unless Minsk agreements are fulfilled by June, Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas said Saturday.
“I don’t see the possibility that Minsk-2 being fully implemented by June. Sorry to say that, but while that is not done, there will be clearly a rollover,” Roivas said, speaking at the annual Lennart Meri Conference in Tallinn.
The current economic sanctions against Russia, imposed over Ukraine crisis, are set to expire in July. The European leaders have not yet submitted a formal document stipulating prolongation of sanctions.
Moscow has repeatedly denied allegations of any involvement in Ukraine's internal conflict, calling for inter-Ukrainian dialogue and deeming the sanctions counterproductive.
