Slovakian prime minister Robert Fico criticised the EU's "meaningless" sanctions on Russia at a news conference Thursday. "Why should we jeopardise the EU economy that is beginning to grow?" questioned Fico. "Who profits from the EU economy decreasing, Russia's economy having troubles and Ukraine economically on its knees?" he added.
