Czech Republic wants to reduce list of Russia sanctions

The Czech government has made the decision, reports referring to Czech mass media.

Czech PM Bohuslav Sobotka is going to defend the Czech machine building industry exporting products to Russia, he said after a meeting in the Cabinet.

Thus, the Czech Republic would like to impose a veto on the sanctions forbidding the export of machine building products to Russia. However, the state supports the financial sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation.

The European Commission approved new Russia sanctions on September 3. They will be considered by the EU member states.
