The absurdity of these accusations, which evoked the works of Kafka, was obvious from the very beginning. So State Duma deputy, member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Elena Panina (United Russia) commented on the statement by Czech Interior Minister Jan Gamachek, who admitted that he had no evidence that the Russian diplomat allegedly brought poison ricin to Prague to poison Prague officials who organized the demolition Monument to Marshal Konev.
“Probably, the Czech authorities have finally realized that to continue this line further is to put in a stupid position and discredit themselves.
Another reason is that Czech politicians who participated in the anti-Russian provocation have already played their part by trying to create a negative background in the European information field around the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory over fascism, ”Elena Panina emphasized.
At the same time, according to the politician, a ridiculous provocation around the “departure” of Prague municipal officials ended in failure.
“If anyone suffered from this story, it’s the reputation of the Czech Republic itself,” Panina stated.
