Main results of the Foreign Affairs Council
The Council unanimously adopted additional listings concerning separatists in Eastern Ukraine and their supporters in Russia. These consist of an asset freeze and a travel ban on 19 persons and 9 entities involved in action against Ukraine's territorial integrity.
To give space for current diplomatic efforts, the Council put the entry into force of the measures on hold until Monday 16 February 2015.
Foreign ministers supported efforts undertaken in view of a new meeting on Wednesday to finally reach full implementation of the Minsk agreements. "It's our duty to give this attempt a chance," said the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini.
