EU links lifting Russia sanctions to peace in Ukraine
BRUSSELS - European Union leaders said Thursday that they would maintain economic sanctions against Russia until the peace agreement on eastern Ukraine is fully implemented.
EU President Donald Tusk said the decision showed the common resolve of the 28 EU nations in the face of Russian involvement in the conflict.
It also underscored the support of the EU for Ukraine, which had urged the member nations to maintain the pressure that the sanctions bring on Russia.
