Fico considers sanctions ineffective, because they are harmful to the European Union and the economic interests of Slovakia in particular. But he added that he respects EU solidarity on this issue.

«If to speak about the implementation of the Minsk agreements, must be clearly stated that both parties violate them. In fact, if we check how Ukraine embodies them, we have to say that Ukraine fulfills them even less than Russia,» — said fico.

Fico has repeatedly called for an end to sanctions against Russia, the last time recently after a meeting with President Vladimir Putin in August in Moscow.

«Sanctions have not changed anything in relation to Russia. Sanctions hurt the EU and Russia, and they help US. I do not accept them, but at the same time is not going to break the unity of the EU», — said the Slovak Prime Minister.

This is stated in the statement of the Embassy of Slovakia in Ukraine, which has the text «European truth».

«Slovakia has full confidence in the estimate of the state of Affairs in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, which are regularly exchanged between EU member States in the Normandy format and which recently was discussed at an informal meeting of foreign Ministers of the EU in Bratislava. At this point, we consider it most important to focus on the fact that the Minsk process was more dynamic and the implementation of the Minsk agreements has accelerated,» — said in a statement.

Slovakia hoped that all parties concerned will make joint efforts to promote implementation of commitments under the Minsk agreements to ensure the stability of Eastern Ukraine and the entire region.

«Slovakia, which currently holds the EU presidency, respects the unity with which the EU responded to the crisis in Ukraine, and is ready to contribute to consensus building in this regard», — said in a statement.
