The Other Day, the Speaker of the Czech President Replied to my Tweet

A Czech journalist of Russian origin, Alexandr Mitrofanov, who holds all the proper views. Is against conservative Poland and Hungary, against Putin, and pro-EU accused Poland and Hungary of acting in the interests of the Kremlin.

“According to the [Czech President], Zeman, the Visegrad Group should be united in its support for Poland and Hungary in their conflict with the EU. If the Warsaw Pact cannot, the V4 must do but against the West and to the benefit of the Kremlin.”

So naturally I asked how does it actually benefit the Kremlin, and received a reply from the speaker of the president, Jiří Ovčáček.

“How does it benefit the Kremlin?”

“This is the beauty of it. Poland explicitly supports the Belarusian opposition, defends the Baltic states and is at loggerheads with the Kremlin. Where is the logic in this? If there is anyone that cooperates with the Kremlin, it is the old EU member countries.”
