The head of the US State Department, John Kerry, announced that the country's authorities have prepared a new package of sanctions in case Russia continues to intervene in the conflict in Ukraine.
The Secretary of State stressed that the US government intends to understand how the Minsk agreements reached on February 12 are being respected. What exactly are the new anti-Russian sanctions, Kerry did not elaborate.
At the same time, the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said that the European Union is discussing the possibility of introducing new sanctions in connection with the situation in the Donbas. “We must be ready for any events, good or bad,” said Tusk, speaking to parliamentarians. He recalled that the Minsk agreements concluded in September 2014 were not respected either by Kiev or the separatists.
