BRUSSELS (QHA) -

The Ambassadors of the European Union extended the ban on investing in the Crimea occupied by Russia. About this on his page in the social network Twitter said the journalist Rikard Jozwiak.

According to him, the ban has been extended for another year.

“EU ambassadors this week decided to prolong the EU investment ban for Crimea by one year. The decision will be endorsed by Ministers on June 18," wrote Jozwiak.

Earlier, the journalist reported that the European Union called for the release of Ukrainians illegally detained by invaders in the occupied Crimea and Russia.

According to him, the EU expects that international human rights standards on the peninsula will be supported.
 
Recently, the German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that the anti-Russian sanctions would be abolished as soon as Russia fulfills its international obligations - liberate the Crimea and stop aggression in the east of Ukraine.

According to the diplomat, agreements exist stipulating that sanctions will be lifted only when the Russian Federation stops aggression against Ukraine.
