With cease-fire violations being reported daily, the EU is far from considering an easing of the sanctions imposed on Russia for its encroachment on Ukraine, according to the official, who asked not to be named because he isn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

If the separatists took the Donetsk airport or the city of Mariupol in an effort to create a land corridor, the EU might impose additional sanctions, the source said. The outcome is impossible to predict and could go either way, the person said.
