The Prague-based European Values think tank has likened President Miloš Zeman to a Russian Trojan horse in an information war. The comparison was made by the think tank’s Jakub Janda within the presentation of a study on Czech websites that serve disinformation purposes. "In the Czech space, Miloš Zeman plays the role of a Russian Trojan horse, systematically embracing and repeating Kremlin’s position on various issues," Jakub Janda, one of the authors of the study, said. The president’s spokesman Jiří Ovčáček dismissed the allegations as nonsensical saying they were part of an ongoing campaign against the head of state. He further questioned the independence and financing of the European Values think tank.
