Visegrad countries PMs condemn actions threatening Ukrainian sovereignty

The prime ministers of the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia issued a joint statement on Tuesday, demanding a decrease in tensions through dialogue. The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, meanwhile, expressed scepticism about plans to impose economic sanctions on Russia; Mr Zeman told reporters that sanctions yielded no reasonable results.
