The Czech minister of foreign affairs, Lubomír Zaorálek, says existing Western sanctions against Russia will probably remain in place until the end of this year. Speaking on a Czech Television debate show on Sunday, the country’s foreign policy chief said he did not expect the sanctions to be either beefed up or watered down after a meeting of the European Commission to discuss the situation in Ukraine later this month. MEP Jan Zahradil said if Russia continued to breach the Minsk agreement further sanctions would be in order. It is the Czech national interest for Moscow’s influence not to spread westwards, he said.
