Czech observer: Russia is angry, it believes that the Czech Republic is engaged in sabotage

54

The Czech press continues to discuss the Czech-Russian political and diplomatic scandal. Let us recall that almost 7 years after the explosions in military warehouses, Prague suddenly announced that "Russian agents of the GRU - Petrov and Boshirov" were involved. Without providing any evidence (even to their own president Milos Zeman), the Czech special services and the government (all on the principle of British accusations against the same Petrov and Boshirov) went into conflict with the Russian Federation. The Czech Foreign Ministry expelled dozens of employees of the Russian embassy, ​​Moscow responded in a mirror-like manner.


Now the newly minted head of the Czech Foreign Ministry, Kulganek, allows himself to give Russia ultimatums demanding that Czech diplomats return to Moscow.

Czech observer Martin Novak, commenting on the events, writes that "the two main critics of the actions of the Czech authorities in Russia are the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov and the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova."

The statement is cited by Maria Zakharova, who noted that for some reason the Czech authorities had not said anything about the progress of the investigation for seven years, and now suddenly "they are working out only one version." And in this Czech version, which Prague is promoting in an categorically affirmative version, Russia is the culprit in the explosions at military depots.

Czech press:

Russia is angry. And now Moscow's anger is directed at Prague, although previously it was most often directed at Ukraine, the United States or Poland. Russia believes that the Czech Republic treats it unfairly and is engaged in sabotage.

At the same time, Martin Novak writes that Russian President Vladimir Putin did not personally speak out on the issue of relations with the Czech Republic. According to Novak, "he also does not always agree with the statements of Maria Zakharova."

From the material in the Aktualne edition:

Earlier, the Russian authorities have already apologized for the words of Zakharova. This was after her publication on a social network, where she compared a photo with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic with a still from the film Basic Instinct.

As a result, the Czech media say that "Russian propaganda against the Czech Republic is getting tougher." At the same time, the publication prefers to remain silent about the tightening of anti-Russian propaganda in the Czech Republic itself.

    They apologized in vain, Zakharova said what we all wanted to say. And the entire Western limitrophic public sees this as Russia's weakness. It is necessary to react harshly to all statements of state vassals.

      Colleague, good morning. Undoubtedly, you need to be tough. But this approach in itself reflects only the fact that we are acting at a second pace. In any case, this is our excuse for reasons initiated by the other side. It seems to me that we should already act more strategically and not reflexively, but deeply and in a planned way.
      In my opinion, three things need to be done:
      - to activate, initiate contacts among young people, for these are those who will determine the policy of the countries in a few years. Conduct student exchange, develop educational, cultural programs at embassies, give foreign students scholarships, provide our students with education in other countries, hold sports competitions, etc. That is, we must show the next generation that we are drunk in the evening in fur hats, Russians from Hollywood films.
      - to work closely with the intelligentsia. Roughly the same scheme as with young people, but include deeper topics - history, science, culture, medicine, space, etc.
      - MEDIA. Who owns the information - he owns the world. Yes, it's hard to compete with Anglo-Saxon monopoly in this area. But this must be done, as the story with RT showed. It is necessary not only to branch out your media network, but also to go online, where there is still such an opportunity. Work with bloggers, opinion leaders, etc.

          It is always easier to tear, break, destroy than to be smarter, more cunning and far-sighted. It is much easier to take offense at everyone and lock yourself in your apartment than to work for a long time with your neighbors so that they begin to understand and accept your point of view. By destroying such relations, we are actually giving the same Czech Republic for full use by the same USA. It is not difficult to predict what will eventually happen, seeing an example of the growth of Russophobia in the same Ukraine for some 7 years. And your proposal will lead to the fact that over time many other countries will be turned against us. Therefore, we must look for ways, think, solve, anticipate problems. Giving up is definitely not an option.

            The measures I propose are the way. But to adapt to the Czechs - these fascist mats and to trade with them to the detriment of themselves is simply the height of stupidity. Let these same USA contain them!
            PS: the rise of Russophobia in Ukraine began in the late 80s, and not 7 years ago. And it was necessary for the leadership of the USSR and then the Russian Federation to PRESS such sentiments (for example, to cut their budget, and the Russian Federation - to interrupt trade relations) and not lisp with these Bandera shortcomings! Then there would be no current Russophobic excesses on the part of Ukraine. And you suggest that repeat the same mistake with the Czech Republic ...

              No, this is not a "way", but only the simplest solution that does not solve the problem itself. In fact, when a leg is broken, you simply propose to cut it off (they say, others will know that it is not worth falling), and not to treat it.

                  You know, while reading you, a phrase from a famous movie came to mind (I will shorten it a little out of respect and paraphrase it):
                  - "Why are you squandering state diplomacy !!!"
                  Relations between countries are created by the labor of many generations, and all your decision - no relationship - no problem!
                  Or I can give an analogy to the novel by Pikul, where one character, a diplomat, says something like the following - swearing is the lot of politicians, and we are diplomats and must negotiate in any situation under any leaders.

                    PS: by the way, "the work of many generations" of diplomats of the USSR and the Russian Federation, as it turned out, was unprofitable for the USSR / RF (sabotage?). - Let them pay threefold "to the treasury" all that they spent on them and all that they leaked to the Czechs ...

            AT THE READERS 'REQUEST. Soviet students at Oxford
            Argumenty i Fakty weekly No. 16 21/04/1990
            The deputy tells about it. Head of the Main Directorate of Foreign Relations of the USSR State Committee for Education M. Sleptsov.

            FOR THE FULL course of study, our students go only to the countries of Eastern Europe, China, Cuba and Mongolia. Now their total number is 550 people. They are sent to other states for six months or a year. IN 1989, the course of the so-called "inclusive education" (for a period of up to a year) was taken by 250 Soviet students in the United States and 120 in the FRG ...

            More than half of the educational quota falls on universities (the rest of the places are given to the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, TASS, etc.), and it is distributed evenly throughout the country.

            In 1988, through the State Committee for Education, 2600 people went abroad for scientific work. Last year this figure was 3 thousand people.

            - And can, for example, our high school graduate go to a foreign university?

            - He must be financially secure abroad and have housing, and in the capitalist countries he must also pay for his studies, and not in rubles, but in foreign currency. When a Soviet person enters a foreign university, another problem arises: we recognize a diploma of graduation from a university only from those countries with which the USSR has agreements on the equivalence of educational documents (Eastern European states, North Korea, Vietnam and some developing countries). Of the capitalist states, there is only such an agreement with Finland.

            - And how, then, to explain that representatives of the Soviet Union study at leading European universities - Oxford, Cambridge, Sorbonne? You involuntarily begin to think about their "elite" origin ...


            - I will say right away that these are the children of workers of the state foreign institutions. In addition, 10 Soviet graduate students also studied at Oxford (Great Britain) last year.
            - Recently, the exchange of students for a year for studying at a foreign university has become quite popular. Who can really get to, say, the USA?
            - Usually we send 2 - 3 people to the US to college immediately after completing their second year at a Soviet university. Applicants must be fluent in English. Soviet students live with their American peers in hostels.
            As for the selection of candidates, we leave this procedure entirely to the discretion of universities. There is an opinion that among Soviet students going to the United States to study there are exclusively "thieves".

      But you don't have to speak for all the Russians - no one promised you unity of opinion. Zakharava, with her speeches, sometimes openly disgraces Russia, and you also need to be careful with harsh statements: we have already quarreled with the world, and the world is also a collective.

    Czech Republic is engaged in sabotage
    At the suggestion of the United States and probably the British (they have experience), the Czech Republic launched an information attack on Russia, which resulted in a diplomatic "war", economic losses (exclusion from the tender) and possible EU sanctions, another blow to the country's image. This is not sabotage, but a direct attack on Russia.

    The Czech Republic is a bargaining chip for the United States, for Europe and for the Czech Republic itself, more precisely for a narrow circle of Czechs and not only, who are capable of making a very wide range of decisions in this country. For Russia alone, the Czech Republic still remains a country ... for Russia and Australian aborigines who received secondary education ...
    It is high time to choose some "Czech Republic" and show teeth with claws instead of pies and gingerbread.
