Kiev/ Ukraine in Arabic/ Crimea sanctions will remain in place regardless of Russia’s actions in eastern Ukraine, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt wrote on Twitter on Friday.

"Crimea sanctions will remain in place regardless of Russia’s actions in eastern Ukraine/ceasefire implementation under Minsk," Pyatt tweeted.

 Еarlier, Russia annexed the Ukrainian territory of Crimea in March after invading the peninsula with its troops, and then began to destabilize the situation in the Donbas. Later, the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics were created, with the direct participation of Russian special forces and the support of Russian army in the Donbas, according to Ukraine.

A growing body of evidence shows Russia also supplies weapons to the militants of the DPR and LPR and sends mercenaries and its regular troops to fight in the Donbas.

The European Union, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and several other countries imposed sanctions against Russia because of its annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea and its destabilization of eastern Ukraine.
