Crimea sanctions are to be extended for one year.

The decisions are to be endorsed by EU foreign ministers on Monday, with a source saying that capitals are keen for next week's EU-leader summit to focus on migration.

The EU instituted one-year sanctions targeted at Russia's energy, defence and finance sectors in July 2014.

It was a response to Russia annexing the Crimean Peninsula and supporting separatist unrest in eastern Ukraine.
