EU vows to impose tough sanctions on Russia if it does not meet four conditions

27-06-2014 17:26

The European Union has promised to introduce new sanctions against Russia if it does not contribute to the fulfilment of a number of conditions by June 30.

This is stated in the European Council conclusions in Ukraine, which were approved on Friday, a Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reported. "The European Council recalls that the European Commission, the EEAS and the Member States have been undertaking preparatory work on targeted measures, as it requested in March, so that further steps can be taken without delay," the European leaders said. The European Council, without naming Russia directly, expects that by Monday, June 30, the following steps will have been taken: agreement on a verification mechanism, monitored by the OSCE, for the ceasefire and for the effective control of the border; return to the Ukrainian authorities of the three border checkpoints (Izvaryne, Dovzhansky, Krasnopartyzansk); release of hostages including all of the OSCE observers; launch of substantial negotiations on the implementation of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's peace plan. "The Council will assess the situation and, should it be required, adopt necessary decisions. The European Council underlines its commitment to reconvene at any time for further significant restrictive measures," the EU leaders said.
