“I mean that one of the reasons why the sanctions is the fact that as long as they do not leave the East of Ukraine, we’re going to continue to keep sanctions against Russia. We believe that it is part of Ukraine, and for this reason, the sanctions will remain, and it’s obviously been a topic which has been discussed with the President today. We will continue to defend it,” said Spicer.
