Czech President Zeman pointed out in a TV speech on the 25th local time that in the six years after the explosion of the verbejice Arsenal in the Czech Republic, the Czech anti reconnaissance agency did not report any information about the possible involvement of Russian agents in the incident in its annual report,Sputnik reported.
“During the six years after the explosion of the Furbaidze ammunition depot, the annual report of the anti reconnaissance agency, even in the secret content, did not report any information that the Russian secret service might be involved in organizing the explosion,” Zeman said.
He also said it was necessary to wait for the results of the investigation before reaching a conclusion on the explosion of the Fulbaijice Arsenal in 2014.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova said that Czech President Zeman’s televised speech made it clear that the Czech side did not have any preconditions and evidence to accuse Russia of participating in the 2014 Arsenal explosion.
Czech Prime Minister Babish said on April 17 that his government suspected that the Russian secret service was involved in the explosion of the Fulbaijice Arsenal in 2014. The Kremlin called the charges outrageous and unfounded, and Russia’s foreign ministry called them “absurd displays.”. However, 18 Russian diplomats were deported by the Czech Republic, and Russia declared 20 staff members of the Czech embassy as unwelcome.
Czech foreign minister Yakubu kurhanek asked Russia to allow the expelled Czech diplomats to return to Moscow, but received no positive response. The Czech Republic once again announced that it would reduce the staff size of the Russian Embassy, and the relevant staff of the Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic must leave the Czech Republic before the end of May.
