EU agrees to extend Russia economic sanctions for 6 months: Sources

AFP , Friday 18 Dec 2015

EU member states agreed Friday to roll over for another six months damaging economic sanctions against Russia for its involvement in the Ukraine crisis, EU sources said.

The decision was originally meant to have been taken earlier this month but doubts raised by several members, especially Italy, over punishing Russia while also seeking its help in the Syrian conflict, led to a two-week delay.
