I’m watching this on Czech TV; they’re covering it live. The political commentators here are saying it’s an unprecedented slap in the face to Vladimir Putin; a major blow to his prestige.
The Czech commentators are noting this with what I can only describe as barely concealed glee, lol.
The Russian are HATED here. You’ll find many still alive who remember the Warsaw Pact invasion of 1968, and Czechs will tell you that Putin is nothing more than the reincarnation of Josef Stalin.
“Youll find many still alive who remember the Warsaw Pact invasion of 1968...”
And you will find many if not all Ukrainians who grew up hearing stories of the atrocities from the Holodomor. Those people have long memories and hold grudges. I wouldn’t F with em!
I used to work with a Czech gentleman. Your description was very accurate.
