The situation in Ukraine should be resolved by a diplomatic treaty between Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the US based on the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the Czech Chamber of Deputies said in a resolution passed on Tuesday evening. The lower house held a session on the matter at the instigation of the Civic Democrats, who wanted Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka to clarify his position on sanctions against Russia. Mr. Sobotka reiterated that he doubted their effectiveness. Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek said he would discuss humanitarian aid to Ukraine on a visit to the country on Wednesday.
