New Russia Sanctions Could Be Lifted If Ceasefire Agreed: UK

New sanctions against Russia expected to be announced on Friday in response to the Ukraine crisis could be lifted if a ceasefire is implemented, Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said.

“What would be sensible is to go ahead with our plan for increased sanctions,” he told the BBC at a NATO summit in south Wales.

“If there is a ceasefire, if it is signed and if it is then implemented, we can then look at lifting sanctions off.”
