Official announcement on this expected at the summit of EU leaders in Brussels.

European Union envoys have agreed to prolong the economic sanctions against Russia for another six months, until January 31, Radio Svoboda reports.

An official announcement on this is expected at the summit of EU leaders in Brussels next week.

The EU Member States have disagreements on the issue of the extension of sanctions against Russia, which expire at the end of July. Until now, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged the allies to maintain sanctions, although such countries as Slovakia, Hungary and Italy have comments on the policy of anti-Russian sanctions.
