BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European Union leaders unanimously agreed to extend sanctions against Russia for another six months because Moscow is not implementing the peace agreements for Ukraine, a spokesman said on Thursday.

“Russia sanctions unanimously extended for another six months because of a lack of Minsk Agreements implementation,” the spokesman tweeted from an EU summit.
