EU postpones extension of anti-Russian sanctions
The European Union postponed a formal decision to extend sanctions against citizens and legal entities of Russia and Ukraine, a source in the EU said.
"Not today, because of the national procedure. There is no new date yet," Sputnik cited the source, who asked not to be named, as saying.
The Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU countries at the European Union (Coreper) last week agreed to extend for six months individual sanctions against citizens and legal entities of Russia and Ukraine, which expires on March 15.
According to sources in the EU, the composition of the list will remain the same, only the data of some of its figurants will be changed. It was assumed that the formally restrictive measures would be extended on Monday without discussion.
