  • Controversial Italian Minister has accused Ukraine of inciting a “religious war”

Salvini also called the sanctions "an absurdity".

His comments came a day after Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini had described the European Union sanctions as a "social, cultural and economic absurdity".

RFE/RL's sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that while the proposal is unlikely to be approved at the summit this week, it might eventually be adopted at a summit meeting in December when European Union leaders are due to vote on extending the EU's sanctions on Russian Federation.

The EU, meanwhile, asked the EIB to stop new financing operations in Russia and the EBRD suspended EU-Russia bilateral and regional cooperation programs. although its projects dealing exclusively with civil society were maintained. He said an assessment of what was most in Italian interests would be made.

EU sources have told RFE/RL that Italy might agree to extend the sanctions if the EU agrees to Rome's proposal to soften them somewhat by reviving EU bank funding for small Russian businesses that were not targeted by the sanctions.
