Golden Prague was Liberated by Soviet Tanks

The act of unconditional capitulation signed on May 9, 1945 did not put an end to hostilities in Europe... The new government of Gross Admiral (Grand Admiral) Karl Dönitz resisted the Soviet troops in the western and central parts of Czechoslovakia... On May 10-11 three Ukrainian fronts continued to move west. On May 11, the Soviet forces met the 3d US Army at Karlsbad-Plzen-Klatovy-Ceske Budejovice (Budweis) line. The last Soviet offensive in Europe was over. Unlike many other European capitals Prague cherishes the memory of its liberators. Milos Zeman, the President of Czech Republic, happened to be the only EU leader to ignore the peremptory shout from Washington and visit Moscow to mark the 70 th anniversary of Great Victory.

The Czech Republic: Doomed without Russia

Czech President Miloš Zeman’s interview on Sunday with the national online newspaper Blesk was unusually tough and outspoken even for the Czech head of state, who is well-known as an independent thinker. Zeman virtually admitted that there was a group of countries within the European Union who were against the anti-Russian sanctions, and declared that with regard to relations between the West and Russia, priority should be given to trade and economic cooperation rather than political confrontation...

Frau Merkel and Social Networks

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has no social network account of her own. At that many politicians use social communications to follow public opinion trends. They are right. Advisors are one thing, the public opinion is something else... By reading the posts Frau Merkel would realize that the majority of Germans want no conflict with Russia. Having summed up all the posts together for sending them to the Federal Chancellor’s office it may be expedient to add some excerpts from the recent interview of Mikhail Gorbachev with the German weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel... Having accused Germany of interfering in Ukraine's crisis, he said, «The new Germany wants its hands in every pie. There seems to be a lot of people who want to be involved in a new division of Europe. Germany has already tried to expand its influence of power towards the East - in World War II. Does it really need another lesson?..

Сhina - Europe: New Alliance? (II)

Hungary and Serbia are the main recipients of Chinese investments in Central and Eastern Europe. According to estimates, China has invested a few billions of euros in their economy. As of 2013, China invested €300 million in Poland and €114 million in Romania. ... Besides, in late October China took a decision to grant Montenegro a €687 loan to fund its part of the high-speed railway. At the same time, Beijing signed a preliminary agreement with Bosnia and Herzegovina on funding a 62-km highway. The goal is to build an integrated pan-Balkan transport infrastructure. Adding to the Piraeus port upgrade project, the Danube Bridge opening ceremony took place at the time of the China and Central and Eastern European Countries meeting.

After Ukraine: Are the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary Veering Off The NATO/EU Reservation?

Despite the firmness shown by the EU’sbiggest players when it comes to sanctioning Putin’s Russia, lower down the pecking order some member states are not happy. Unlike the most craven and obedient puppets — the Baltic States and Poland — it took some arm twisting to get the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to agree to punish Moscow for annexing Crimea. Each country is dependent for much of its energy on Russia with which there are also valued economic ties. Why rock the boat? Despite hyperbole claiming that Vladimir Putin was intent on taking them over and rebuilding the iron curtain, in reality, Russia has been an unproblematic neighbour for a quarter of a century.

The Polish-American Landmine under the Visegrad Group

Conflicts within the European Union are continuing to intensify, and one of the most successful regional projects in Europe – the Visegrad Group – is at risk... Rather than associating themselves with the policy of Brussels and Warsaw regarding Ukraine, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava are discussing the economy, calculating their losses as a result of anti-Russian sanctions, and even criticising the European Union. Warsaw’s dissatisfaction with the course of events is growing. A lengthy article published in the leading Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza on 19 September puts the question bluntly: why is the Visegrad Group not united in its condemnation of Russia, and why is it not hurrying to rally its members around Poland as the main defender of Ukraine? Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks are accused of collective amnesia, what the newspaper calls exaggerated trade and economic links with Russia...

Visegrad group to Become a Permanently Deployed EU-NATO Rapid Response Force Reinforced by Ukraine

...On 21 March 2014, European Union Heads of State and Government and Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk signed the political provisions of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The agreement commits both parties to promote a gradual convergence toward the EU's Common Security and Defense Policy and European Defence Agency policies. The V4 is an important step linking Ukraine – EU military structure, which depends on and closely aligns its activities with NATO. The first step on the way is joining the Visegrad Battle group military unit. Visegrad Group defence ministers made the decision at a meeting on June 1 before the formal meeting of NATO defence ministers in Brussels... Slovakia, as the V4 President, will promote close cooperation of military intelligence services and that cooperation will be extended by Romania and the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia)...

What They Teach in German Schools

The history lessons forgotten, the West turns a blind eye on the activities of Ukrainian political organizations Svoboda and Pravy Sector. Hindenburg, as German President, appointed Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany.  He was sure that the country was to be ruled by the government of national solidarity. No need to deceive oneself believing that Yarosh, the Ukrainian Nazi and presidential candidate, has little support: his rating is about 2, 5%, the same as received by the National Socialist German Workers Party ( NSDAP ) in 1928. In1930 itreceived18% tobeincreasedto37% in1932. Nothing is exactly repeated in history, but the lessons should not be forgotten, especially by those who cherish the hope that Pravy Sector will collapse…

Temelín: Strategic Growth Project for Russian-Czech Relations

Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas arrived in Russia on a four-day working visit late May, 2013. Trade and energy policy are among the topical issues for Prague and Moscow – 6% increase in turnover is good news for both parties. Infrastructure investment projects like Temelín nuclear power plant could be the cornerstone of successful bilateral cooperation. Temelín NPP means not only thousands new jobs, but also affordable energy for the Czech industry. It can truly be a safety net in times of European economic meltdown.
