The EU should move towards a gradual lifting of sanctions against Russia, and do it for implementation of each point envisaged in the Minsk Agreements, said Minister of Foreign Affairs of Austria, Sebastian Kurz as cited by Reuters.

Thus, the EU should start looking for common ground with Russia, said the Head of the Austrian Foreign Ministry.

- I am sure that we should gradually get to the point when sanctions are lifted along with the implementation of each term of the Minsk Protocol, said Kurtz.

He also voiced hope that his proposal will be considered in the medium term.
