On Smolenskaya Square, they expect a prompt response to the request of the Russian Foreign Ministry
The continuation of the destructive line by the Czech Republic towards Russia is fraught with further degradation of relations between our countries and will not remain without Moscow’s reaction. This is stated in the comment of Maria Zakharova, Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, in connection with the arrest of Russian citizen Alexander Franchetti at the request of the Kiev regime.
It is noted that Smolenskaya Square demanded from the head of the Czech diplomatic mission in Moscow Vitezslav Pivonka to provide our diplomats with detailed information regarding the motives of the actions of the leadership of the Republic, as well as what offenses Franchetti is charged with.
“The ambassador was warned that the continuation of the destructive line of Prague towards Russia and its citizens will lead to further degradation on the initiative of the Czech side of bilateral relations and will not remain without a reaction from our side,” follows from the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry speaker.
The Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic sent a note to the Czech Foreign Ministry. Moscow expects a prompt response from Prague.
We will remind, on September 12 Franchetti was detained at the airport of the Czech capital. Ukraine issued an international arrest warrant for him. According to the Kiev regime, the Russian allegedly took part in the events of the Crimean Spring, as a result of which the peninsula became part of the Russian Federation. A well-known lawyer in the Republic, Pyotr Rudlovchak, believes that the extradition process for Franchetti may last even more than a year, RIA Novosti reports.
We add that in May of this year, the Czech Republic, together with the United States, was included by Moscow in the list of countries unfriendly to Russia. With regard to Prague, the Russian Foreign Ministry made such a decision after the far-fetched accusations of the Czech authorities in the involvement of our country in the explosions at military depots in Vrbetica in 2014.
