And the possible punishment will likely be applied to other lackeys of Murica between Mittleuropa and Greater Russia…
The Czech president, who is privy to top secret documents of the Czech secret services, cast serious doubt on the involvement of Petrov and Boshirov in ammunition explosions in Vrbětice in 2014. The president said he has not seen concrete evidence of Russian involvement.
However, despite this lack of evidence, the Czech Republic expelled 18 Russian diplomats, barred Russia from participating in competition for construction of nuclear reactors, rejected the Sputnik V vaccine, and the Czech senate even accused Russia of state terrorism. Well, I think the government was under pressure from Murica not to allow the Russians to build nuclear reactors, and to reject the Russian vaccine, and they needed an excuse, hence the reaction.
The question is, how should Russia react to such fraudulent accusations and outburst of Russophobic hysteria? And in the past few days I have seen several ideas floating around…
- Stop Buying Czech. As far as I’m concerned, the Czechs, much like the rest of Eastern Europe, do not export indispensable products. Alcoholic drinks such as beer can easily be foregone. A number of Czech beer brands are already brewed in Russia, so the Russians will still have Czech beer. Now, the best Czech beer is always in restaurants on a tap, and I can basically count those restaurants on the palm of my hand. Same goes for cars, Skoda is assembled in Russia.
- Close the embassy. Given that the Czech embassy has already been paralysed by the expulsion of its staff in Russian retaliatory measures, an idea to close the embassies of East European countries has been floated. Schengen area does not need a Czech diplomatic mission. Currently, the duties of the Czech embassy has been taken over by the Germans, and it could remain this way until the Czechs come to their senses.
- Rename the Metro stations of Prazhskaya and Kiyevskaya. The Metro stations in Moscow that bear the names of East European capitals should instead bear the names of the WWII generals that liberated them from Nazi occupation given that the memory of these generals has been shat upon by provincial authorities in those countries. Hence the station bearing the name of Prague should bear the name of Ivan Konev and the one bearing the name of Kiev should be renamed in the honour of Nikolai Vatutin.

I disagree with p.3. The names of the stations, as well as some streets such as Warsaw road, are not intended to honour the respective places, they are imperial legacy. By keeping them Moscow retains the hallmarks of an imperial capital. Let the small peoples of Central Europe rename their streets out of fleeting political fad; we conquered Prague and Budapest (doesn’t matter from whom), so the names stay.
I do not know of an instance when the Russians conquered Prague.
I believe the date was 09.05.1945, if my memory serves me right Prague was the only major city where the fighting ended after the armistice was signed. Of course, some people prefer the term “liberated”, but then again many others will have an issue with that. So I prefer to go with “conquered”.
