German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday that the European Union was not planning new sanctions against Russia over a fresh spike in tensions in Ukraine.
Merkel reiterated that EU member states were considering adding pro-Russian separatists to existing sanction lists imposed on Moscow.
But she added at a news conference in Berlin: "Beyond that, further economic sanctions are not planned at the moment."
