Czech president speaks against new anti-Russian sanctions.(If it is unambiguously proven that Russia sent its combat troops to the east of Ukraine)

PRAGUE, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. A new package of sanctions against Russia should be adopted only if the West is able to prove claims that Russian troops are deployed in Ukraine, Czech President Milos Zeman said during his visit to the country’s parliament Tuesday.

“Sanctions will only be possible if it is unambiguously proven that Russia sent its combat troops to the east of Ukraine,” Zeman said. “Had the invasion occurred, I would support tougher sanctions. But if there was none, I would speak for no sanctions at all but for the start of talks resulting in a truce.”
Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said Tuesday the path of toughening sanctions against Russia is risky for Europe.

“We should act in such a manner so as to pay more attention to the interests of the Czech Republic and the European Union. I believe Europe should avoid harming itself by these sanctions,” Sobotka said.

He said “the biggest problem” is response measures Russia could adopt against EU countries. The premier said the Czech government will on Wednesday decide the issue of the country’s attitude toward a new package of anti-Russian sanctions planned by the EU.

At Saturday’s EU summit in Brussels, Sobotka criticized the already adopted sanctions against Moscow characterizing them as “ineffective.”.....................
