EU warns fresh sanctions against Russia if Ukraine ceasefire not respected
February 13 , 2015
Germany's Angela Merkel has warned that Russia would face new EU sanctions if the agreement to end the Ukraine conflict is not completely implemented.
The ceasefire deal was signed on Thursday in Belarus after marathon talks involving the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany.
The agreement, also signed by pro-Russia separatists, includes withdrawing weapons and exchange of prisoners.
Meanwhile, the World Bank has said it is willing to give up to $2 billion in financial aid to Ukraine.
