The Czech President is a master troll. From Ukrayins’ka Pravda
The President of Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman invited the representatives of a small Crimean Tatar organization, loyal to the Kremlin, which considers Crimea to be part of Russia. to an official audience in the Prague Castle.
This has been reported by Evropeys’ka Pravda with a reference to Deník N.
The representative of the marginal (subjective opinion of the Ukrayinska Pravda, the appeal of this organisation could not be independently verified) organisation “K’yrym birligi”, Tamila Nimetullaeva has attended the official audience in the Presidential Palace dedicated to 101 anniversary of the creation of Czechoslovakia, held on 28 October.
This organisation, as the publication admits, plays an important role for the propagandist media of the Russian Federation. They are declaring their support for Moscow as a counterweight to the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar Peoples. (perhaps it is the Mejlis that is the irrelevant party here)
At the same time, the organisation is not recognized by the EU.
“The EU and its leaders have never met with these pseudo-representatives of the Crimean Tatars, and never had relations with them. For the EU, the legal representatives [of the Crimean Tatars] is the Mejlis and other Crimean organisations that function or are represented in Ukraine.” -said the former speaker of the EU representation David Stulík.
(The Mejlis was arbitrarily appointed the representative of the Crimean Tatar peoples in 2014 following Russian takeover of Crimea. The wishes of Kiev or Brussels may not reflect the reality of things on the ground.)
The organisations immediately exploited its presence at the official audience of the Czech President.
“The President of Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman is s European politician, who recognized Crimea as a part of Russia. The Czech Republic is a friend to our country. K’yrym birligi is glad that our activity has been recognized internationally. We are thankful for this annual invitation to the Birthday of the Czech Republic.” -is being said in a post on the organization’s Facebook page. It is accompanied by photographs, including one featuring Nimetullaeva with the Czech Prime Minister, Andrej Babiš.
The President’s office was not able to explain, even after numerous demands, why this organisation was invited to the festivities.
Presidents press secretary, Jiří Ovčáček did not deny the president considers Crimea to be a part of Russia. “The people hold a variety of views. I have lived through the eighties when we were forced to assume only one view. I don’t want to repeat those times.”
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tomáš Petříček has come out against the invitation of pro-Kremlin activists. “I personally would not have invited such persons to an event organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” He said that audiences with the president are not being consulted with the Foreign Ministry.
The publication also found out that the request for audience with the Czech President was facilitated for the pro-Kremlin organisations through Carpatho-Rusyn activists.
We remind the readers that the Czech President, Miloš Zeman, received an audience of 7 people at the Prague Castle, who represent the Carpatho-Rusyns that demand an autonomy within Ukraine.
It triggered many. Here is Ayder Muzhdabayev. Ayder is a Russian journalist that moved to Ukraine, and now he is more Ukrainian than many Ukrainians.
The President of Czech Republic, a country for whose freedom, Mustafa Jemilev went to a Russian jail, acknowledged “Russian sovereignty over Crimea”. May you die mother fucker. You monster. Although, I have no questions for the old prostitute bought by Putin. The Czechs should be ashamed. You have fucked the Prague Spring and your dignity having elected this piece of shit. May the Russians again occupy you, and may no one support you this time. May Facebook block me again for this post. This is the lowest moral point and I don’t give a fuck.
