russia regrets EU move to extend sanctions against Russia
Moscow voices regret over the European Union’s decision to extend the anti-Russian sanctions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS on Friday.

At the summit in Brussels on Thursday, the EU leaders announced a political decision on extending sectoral sanctions against Russia, which expire on July 31, for another six months.

The EU’s sectoral sanctions against Russia were imposed on August 1, 2014. They include visa restrictions against Russian citizens, economic sectoral sanctions against a number of Russian state companies in oil, defense and financial sectors, and also restrictions against Crimea.

All these packages were introduced in 2014. Two first sanctions packages are extended once in six months, and the restrictions against Crimea - once per a year.
