The Czech prime minister, Bohuslav Sobotka, has described Russia’s actions in connection with Ukraine as unacceptable. In an interview for the Czech News Agency, Mr. Sobotka said he believed sanctions could be imposed on Russia but added that he was not currently in favour of them. The PM said he and the other members of the leadership of the state’s Security Council had considered possible risks stemming from the situation in Crimea and concluded that for now no special measures needed to be taken. Mr. Sobotka said the only positive step the Russians had taken was not advancing beyond Crimea further into southeastern and eastern Ukraine.
