PRAGUE, Czech Republic – The former president of the Czech Republic, Václav Klaus, has pointed to Ukraine as the biggest problem in the world.
Ukraine is the main factor that can deteriorate the international situation, said Klaus, who served as president of the Czech Republic between 2003 and 2013.
“I regard Ukraine as the biggest problem,” Klaus said, referring to international security.
During an interview for a Prague radio station, Klaus explained that Ukraine “is urged by the political elites of the West to provoke Russia as much as possible.”
However, Moscow does not respond to the provocative actions of the Ukrainian authorities. “This is a happy decision because otherwise this boiler could explode,” warned Klaus.
Before becoming president of the Czech Republic, the politician served as head of government and president of the lower house of his country.
At the end of December, the current Czech president, Milos Zeman, promised that his country would protest officially against the Ukrainian practice of presenting war criminals as heroes.
His comments come as days ago in the US there was a meeting between Republican senators and representatives of various Ukrainian civil organizations, in which lawmakers strongly criticized Ukraine’s policy, according to International Policy Digest.
Above all, the senators said that Ukraine has become an uncontrollable country for the US and the European Union, according to the issue.
US politicians have pointed out that the Ukrainian authorities follow an extremely unproductive economic policy.
According to them, international financial institutions contribute billions of dollars to Ukraine, however, the frenzied corruption and sterile expenditures for the internal conflict in Donbass, make international efforts level. This also leads to the gradual reduction of the country’s GDP, recorded in recent years, as well as the massive emigration of Ukrainians.
In addition, the senators criticized the Ukrainian president, Pyotr Poroshenko, for the method he chose to pursue his opponents with the help of the law. According to them, the public security organs are used in the country to fulfill political goals, while the courts, controlled by politicians and influential entrepreneurs, are far from independent, frequently sentencing political enemies, stressed the issue.
