Further economic sanctions on Russia not planned, Merkel says

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Angela Merkel said on Tuesday there were no plans at present for further economic sanctions on Russia over Ukraine but she was unhappy that a ceasefire agreement was being broken and that pro-Russian rebels had gone ahead with their elections.

"We are not satisfied with the situation of the Minsk agreement because large parts of the Minsk agreement are not being implemented," she said, adding that the ceasefire and respect for Ukraine's borders were both being flouted.
