Poland Urgently Called a Meeting of the Visegrad Group Because of the «aggression of Russia»
OREANDA-NEWS. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki urgently initiated the convening of a meeting of the heads of government of the Visegrad Group (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary). The topic of discussion is the Russian issue. This is stated in the message of the Government Information Center, which is quoted by Russian media «RIA Novosti».
The negotiations will be held in the format of a video link. The Information Center said, that the purpose of the meeting is to discuss the situation against the background of Russian «aggression». The heads of government of the Visegrad Group will also discuss Czech-Russian relations and support for the actions taken by Prague. Previously, the foreign ministers of the Visegrad Group countries supported the expulsion of Russian diplomats.
Earlier, Prague accused Moscow of involvement in the explosion of ammunition stored in warehouses in Vrbetice in 2014. Allegedly, the explosion was arranged by two Russians: Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, whom the Czech authorities call agents of the special services. They were caught on surveillance cameras, but no confirmation of this was provided. On April 17, 18 Russian diplomats were expelled from the Czech Republic. Moscow responded in a mirror manner and expelled 20 employees of the Czech Embassy.
