"I understand that the EU's economic sanctions against Russia most probably will be prolonged in Dec but if there is some progress in the Normandy talks, some 'lesser' sanctions like the re-start of regular EU-Russia summits (suspended since 2014) might happen," he wrote on Twitter on October 8, 2019.
