The decision to extend European sanctions against Russia was not unanimous, said Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki, who took part in the summit of EU leaders.

The EU leaders on Thursday made a political decision to extend the economic sanctions against Russia, which expires at the end of January 2018.

«The discussion that took place on the subject of sanctions, showed that all except for a few southern European countries understand that sanctions should be extended because they are not only an element of pressure on Russia, but also the specific symbol, as the European Union does not agree with the annexation of Crimea, does not agree with the war in the Eastern part of Ukraine and we insist that the Minsk agreement was executed,» said Morawiecki in Polish TV.
