The Czech government on Wednesday authorized Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka to voice objections to some of the planned new EU sanctions against Russia, Mr Sobotka told reporters. The government is planning to table reservations to the sanctions’ extension to goods with both civil and military applications in order to protect Czech machinery producers. Two members of the government for the Christian Democrat party abstained from the vote, the news agency ČTK reported, instead proposing an official declaration denouncing of what they described as Russian aggression.
