Moscow is disappointed by Australia's decision to expand sanctions against Russia and urges it to judge about the events ongoing in Ukraine impartially, a Russian Foreign Ministry sources said on Tuesday.

"All that's left to do is regret that, despite a lot of time has passed since the start of the events in Ukraine, Canberra has still been unable to look into the true reasons of the conflict in Ukraine," he said.

Moscow urges "Canberra to judge everything that is going on [in Ukraine] impartially and independently," he said.

"It's perhaps due to its [Australia's] geographic remoteness that reports on the peace agreements adopted in Minsk on February 12 this year, in which Russia played a decisive role to a large extent, will reach it not sooner than by summer. But it is Kyiv that is currently consistently disrupting the common agreements," the source said.
