EU to extend economic sanctions against Russia

The European Union leaders have agreed to extend tough economic sanctions against Russia over its meddling in Ukraine for six months.

This has been stated by EU President Donald Tusk in his tweet message after leaders discussed the issue at a summit in Brussels.

He said EU is united on roll-over of economic sanctions on Russia.

The EU imposed the economic sanctions against Russia after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in July 2014 was shot down over Ukraine, killing 298 people, an attack blamed by the EU on pro-Russian rebels.
