Videopanel Klimkin compared the statement of the President of the Czech Republic acting
“Speech by Zeman in the Council of Europe stood in stark contrast to our foreign policy, and the President had no mandate from the Czech government,” he said.
Bohuslav Sobotka said that the Czech Republic advocates the observance of international law. He also said that EU sanctions against Russia cannot be canceled before the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
The Czech Embassy in Ukraine has said that the words of Zeman a “sale” of the Crimea was his personal opinion.
“It is necessary to deal with Directors.” Klimkin called Zeman “actor” for the offer to compensate for the annexation of the Crimea
We will remind, at the PACE session in Strasbourg, the President of Czech Republic miloš Zeman has invited Ukraine to legitimize the annexation of Crimea by financial compensation from Russia. “Crimea is annexation, without a doubt. It is a finished work (fait accompli). In my opinion, will be some compensation for Ukraine – or in a financial form or in oil and gas”, – he stressed.
According to Zeman, if Ukraine does not agree to compensate, will start the “European war”. According to him, war is inevitable in the case of a continuing effort to return the Crimea.
