The European Union plans to review its sanctions against Russia at the end of October, the Head of the EU Delegation to Russia, Ambassador Vygaudas Usackas, said when answering a question from Interfax on the sidelines of the European Business Association forum in Moscow on Tuesday.

The results of such a review will depend on the progress of stabilization efforts in Ukraine, the withdrawal of forces, as well as border monitoring and control by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, he said.

The EU will make a decision concerning the possible partial or complete lifting of its sanctions, taking these concrete results into consideration, Usackas said, adding that the most important thing was to secure progress in stabilization efforts and implement the Minsk agreements.
