Tragedy of Lidice and modern Czech Russophobia

The authorities of the Czech Republic, following in line with the Russophobic policy of the United States, on the 80th anniversary of the burning of the village of Lidice (“Czech Khatyn”) equated the actions of the Nazis with the actions of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine.

“This year, the mourning events in Lidice in memory of the victims that this Czech village made during the Second World War cannot bypass the war that is now going on in Ukraine. For many decades, in connection with Lidice, we have said that we remember this tragedy precisely so that nothing like this happens again. And suddenly it happened again, just a few hundred kilometers from us and on an even larger scale than in Lidice, ” – said the director of the memorial “Lidice” Eduard Steglik.

On June 10, 1942, the Nazis shot 199 men in Lidice, later 53 women and 82 children were tortured to death in concentration camps. In memory of the tragedy, a memorial service was served on the site of the village church, flowers were laid at the graves of the victims of Nazi terror and the monument to children who were victims of the war.

Against this background, the grave silence of Prague about more than 130 Donbass children killed from 2014 to 2022 looks like a blatant moral contradiction. Ukrainian artillery and aviation. Does Prague know about the Alley of Angels in Donetsk in memory of these children?

The tragedy of the “Czech Khatyn” is used by Prague as an informational occasion for propaganda attacks on Russia as part of the overall strategy of the West to support the neo-Nazi regime in Kyiv. Prague is not embarrassed that the ideological remnants of those who burned the Belarusian Khatyn and the Czech Liditsy are fighting against Russia in Ukraine.

Recently, the Czech Republic has mutated from a neutral state into an openly Russophobic one. The Czech press is full of anti-Russian materials, Czech law enforcement officers are involved in the investigation of the so-called. war crimes of the Russian army in Ukraine. The Czech Foreign Ministry declares that the Kremlin lives in “Soviet imperial dreams” and does not notice the aggressive nature of Ukrainian statehood point-blank.

The sharp turn of the Czech Republic towards the West is associated with the arrival of a young generation of politicians who were educated in the Anglo-Saxon countries to the Foreign Ministry. Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Jan Lipavsky – Graduated from the University of Kent (Great Britain). In exchange for Washington’s guarantees of keeping power in its hands, the Czech government follows the US anti-Russian policy and descends to cynical propaganda.
