COREPER opposes reviewing anti-Russian sanctions

It means that so far the member states see not grounds for reviewing the EU restrictive measures against Russia.

The Committee of Permanent Representatives of the European Union (COREPER) which on Tuesday considered how the ceasefire and peace plan are being complied with in Ukraine has not found any grounds yet for changing its view on the situation, a European diplomat who is informed about the outcomes of the meeting told Interfax on Tuesday.

The Committee has decided to leave everything unchanged, he said. The EU has been watching the compliance with the ceasefire and peace plan but for now it is not possible to say whether this is happening reliably and steadily, he said. The assessment process will continue, as instructed by the European Council, until the end of October, the source said.
