Poland and Britain called for tougher sanctions against Russia

During the EU summit, the possibility of strengthening the sanctions against the Russian Federation was discussed, according to the Prime Minister of Poland, Beata Szydło.

"The first initiative came from the British Prime minister Theresa May. She offered to discuss the possibility of imposing new sanctions related to the events in Syria. This initiative has long been discussed but has not found enough support. But I am sure that we will return to this issue," the Polish Prime Minister said.

Also, according to her, the Polish party took the initiative to impose sanctions against Russia not for six months, as it is now, but for twelve. “This would remove a lot of political risks. Therefore, this initiative as well, I am sure, will be discussed in the future.” She added.
