24-09-2014

Former Minister for Human Rights and Minorities, Michael Kocáb, has initiated a petition to distance himself from the attitude of president Miloš Zeman and the government toward the situation in Ukraine. The petition calls on politicians to actively support Ukraine’s sovereignty and to express their disagreement with Russia’s interference into Ukrainian affairs. The petition has been signed by some 1500 people so far, including priest and theologian Tomáš Halík or documentary filmmaker Olga Sommerová.
