Ukraine does less to fulfill Minsk agreements than Russia. Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico stated this, calling on the European Union to lift sanctions against Russia, Reuters reports.

"Talking about the implementation of the Minsk agreement, it must be said it is clear that both parties violate it. In fact, if we have tested how Ukraine does its part, and now we clearly see Ukraine fulfills its even less than Russia. This is not true that Ukraine is a good guy and Russia is the bad guy", said Fico.

Slovak Prime Minister said that sanctions against Russia proved to be ineffective, harmful to the European Union and the economic interests of Slovakia. However, he added that he would respect the joint EU position on this issue.

Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico during his meeting with Chairman of the Russian State Duma Sergey Naryshkin on June 3, 2015 stated the need to stop the "competition" of the EU sanctions with Russia. He noted that economic sanctions against Russia have a negative impact on the Slovak economy.
