Germany expects EU sanctions against Russia to be extended

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany expects European Union leaders this week to pave the way for an extension of EU sanctions against Russia over its involvement in the Ukraine crisis, a senior government official said on Thursday.

The virtual EU summit on Friday is likely to seal the political agreement for such a step which would then be implemented by EU foreign ministers later this month, the official added.
