The occupation of Crimea by Russia is a ‘serious violation of the international law’; Czech foreign minister Martin Stropnicky said this during his telephone conversation with Ukrainian colleague Pavlo Klimkin.

The Czech diplomat assured Klimkin that his government remains committed to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. The officials also ‘discussed the progress of political and economic reforms in the country, the fight against corruption and the implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU’, reads the message at the website of Czech foreign ministry.

Despite the openly pro-Russian stance of Czech president Milos Zeman, many common Czech citizens condemn Russia’s actions in Crimea. Protests took place in Prague after his statement about Crimea; in October 2017, the Czech leader offered Russia to pay for Crimea with money or gas, and thus consider the issue solved.
