KIEV (QHA) -

Italian Ambassador to Ukraine Fabrizzio Romano denies his country blocking extension of sanctions against Russia for non-fulfillment of the Minsk agreements.

“I am absolutely confident that Italy is not opposed to the sanctions and shares the opinion of other EU countries,” said Fabrizzio Romano in an interview with the Romano-Ukrainian News.

Romano stressed that Italy’s position regarding Russia will remain unchanged until the Minsk agreements are implemented in full.
