President of Czech Republic Milos Zeman has publicly called Prague to officially express the protest against “glorification of war criminals by Ukraine”, Zeman’s Press Secretary Jiří Ovčáček reported this on Twitter.
In the claim, Zeman criticized the reaction of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs by calling it ‘shameful’.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Czech Tomas Petricek thinks that Ukraine is the one who has to deal with its history.
‘Ukraine must cope with the painful aspects of its history itself. To do so, Ukraine needs sufficient time. I will talk about this to my colleagues during a visit to Ukraine in early next year,’ he stressed.
Recently, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a law, which expands the list of participants in combat actions by the warriors of a number of forces, which fought for the independence of Ukraine in the 20th century, including the members of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and armed units of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists.
