The Director of the geopolitical studies of the European Institute for international relations Pierre-Emmanuel Thomann urged the EU to impose sanctions against Ukrainian authorities for the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements on settling the situation in Donbass.




It might be badly perceived (by the political establishment of the West – ed.) but I think it would be more effective if sanctions have been applied to the Ukrainian authorities for their implementation of the Minsk agreements”, — he said.


He believes that “the Ukrainian government does not implement the “Minsk-2″, and, in particular, the decentralization of the country, acceptable to the different flows in Ukraine, including the Donbass”.
