"Since our last G7 in Japan we haven't seen anything that would justify a change in our sanctions policy towards Russia," Tusk said at a joint press briefing with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker ahead of the G7 summit in Taormina, Italy, on May 26, 2017.

"Therefore, I will appeal to the other G7 leaders to reconfirm this policy," Tusk stressed.

As UNIAN reported earlier, President of the European Council Donald Tusk said the European Union and the United States would continue their common sanctions policy toward Russia.
