European Union ambassadors on October 28 decided to keep in place all existing EU sanctions that have been imposed against Russia over its annexation of Crimea and its support for pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
When the sanctions were imposed, EU member states decided to review Russia’s actions toward Ukraine at the end of October -- holding out the possibility that sanctions could be ramped up or scaled down.
Leaders of countries like Italy and Hungary have said that the sanctions do not work and should be eased or lifted.
But all member states must agree in order to change the sanctions regime.
EU members are far from agreeing on lifting the sanctions – with some countries, such as Lithuania, saying that sanctions against Russia sound be tightened even further.
