The Ukrainian embassy in Prague has protested the “illegal” visit of two Czech politicians to the territory of Crimea, annexed by Russia in 2014, Interfax reported.
Communist MEP Jaromír Kohlíček and Senator Jaroslav Doubrava of the Severočeši.cz movement attended Sunday's Sevastopol parade of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the embassy said.
“To somehow whitewash their crimes, Russia is chaotically searching around the world for politicians with a lower threshold of political hygiene, who are ready to participate in propaganda voyages to the occupied peninsula. Unfortunately, several such politicians were found in the Czech Republic,” the embassy said in a statement, according to Interfax.
