European Union extends Russian embargo on Ukraine: Merkel



German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union had agreed to extend the sanctions on Russia over the conflict in Ukraine for six months.

Merkel said in a chat with Black's fellow leaders after the video conference, that the entire sector of Russia's economy was targeted, including its precious oil business, which was due to expire this month, but would be extended "six months."

These actions were first imposed on Russia's role in the conflict following the collapse of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in rebel-held eastern Ukraine in 2014 and have been renewed every six months since then.

Germany and France have repeatedly tried to establish peace between Russia and Ukraine.

Although both sides successfully backed the 2015 Minsk Peace Accord, it was difficult for both countries to fully implement the agreement.

Merkel said that "progress on Minsk's allegations" would not allow us to make recommendations against sanctions on Russia. "

Thousands died after pro-Russian militants bid for independence in eastern Ukraine in 2014, stopping the conflict that intensified the Russian system from the West.

German prosecutors have pursued an extension of a series of sanctions between Germany and Russia after Moscow ordered the killing of a Georgian man in Berlin's Tiergarten Park.

The Merkel government has warned of new sanctions in the case compared to the poisoning of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal in Britain in 2018.

She has always stressed the importance of maintaining communication with Russia, but in recent weeks her voice has intensified.

The German leader has expressed his exaggeration in the many hacking attacks believed by Berlin by Berlin.

Merkel revealed in May that Russia had targeted her in the hacking attacks, saying she had strong evidence of "abusive" cryptocurrency efforts.


The German government says it will use EU cyber sanctions that led to the 2015 hacking attack on the Bundestag in Brussels.
