The European Union is set to back sanctions on those responsible for violence in Ukraine, as well as to impose an arms embargo on the country, according to a draft text of an EU ministerial statement obtained by Reuters.

However, EU officials cautioned that the text is subject to revisions and the final decision will be taken by EU foreign ministers due to meet in Brussels later on Thursday.
