A memorable fragment from the current anti-Russian hysteria in the Czech Republic that is worth of a note on this blog…
Tag: Ondřej Kolář
How Many Rubles for the Heads of Novotný and Kolář?
Ondřej Kolář is the mayor of Prague 6, who recently removed the statue to the Soviet liberator of Prague, Ivan Konev. Pavel Novotný is the mayor of Řeporyje, a village that forms the outskirts of Pragua. He brings plenty of traffic to this blog, and recently came up with the initiative to commemorate the soldiers of the Russian Liberation Army. A Nazi collaborator group formed of Russians, who at the very end of the War turned on their Nazi masters and helped the revolt of Czech patriots against the German occupiers...
The Czech Republic is a funny place. Following the removal of Konev’s statue, Russia reacted with enacting a law that would prosecute people, who desecrate the monuments to Red Army in Eastern Europe. But the reaction of the Czechs has been rather hysterical. Not so long ago, a piece of news began circulation that the Czech secret service, the BIS, has information that a man has arrived in Prague, who can be a potential danger to Ondřej Kolář, Pavel Novotný, and the principal mayor of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib. All, as I know, were placed under police protection. Recently, the Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs said he knows of Russian actions and that should anything happen to Kolář or Novotný, they will know who did it.
I personally think, the BIS has links to Kolář and this is a conspiracy to create a moral panic with the aim of damaging Czech-Russian relations, and the current government in the Czech Republic as all the mayors represent the opposition. The opposition in the Czech Republic is normally represented in urban areas, whereas the government and the president represent the countryside.
Some people seized on the opportunity to have a bit of laugh at the expense of the eccentric mayors of Prague. Some Zdeněk Pernica from an obscure regional right-wing party asked on Facebook how much is the reward, and added that he lost money due to Corona and needs to cover the losses. He did not mention anyone in text but included a doctored picture with himself holding a rifle and the three mayors seated.
Novotný and representatives of the Czech liberal wing went into hysteria and tried to get the police involved.
The journalists were also active…
I really hope the police still has some sense of humour left unlike the liberal turds that went ratting on the man. The issue was widely reported in mainstream media, which tried to create a moral panic.
