Czech Prosecutor General Pavel Zeman said that the same people who are suspected of poisoning the former GRU officer Sergei Skripal are behind the attack on the warehouse in Vrbetica, RIA Novosti reports.
According to Zeman, “the same two people were involved in the attack on Vrbetice.”
At the same time, Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis noted that he does not consider the incident in the village of Vrbetice an act of state terrorism on the part of Russia. According to him, “it was an attack by GRU agents on goods belonging to a Bulgarian arms dealer.” Babis also said that he would like to declassify the document about the incident, but “the investigation is ongoing.”
Earlier, the Kremlin rejected accusations of the Czech Republic of Russia’s involvement in the explosion in Vrbetica. We will remind, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrei Babish announced suspicions of the involvement of the Russian special services in the explosion in Vrbetica. This was followed by the expulsion of 18 Russian diplomats from the republic. In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry declared 20 employees of the Czech Embassy in Moscow persona non grata and expelled them.
