Zeman Blasts EU Leaders over Response to Russia’s Illegal Annexation of CrimeaMatt Atlas
In an interview with Russian news agency TASS days before an official trip to Russia, Czech President Miloš Zeman rebukes the European Union. Stating the EU lacks strong leadership and used a double standard with regards to Crimea.
The European Union’s double standards on Crimea’s reunification with Russia are a bad practice, Czech President Milos Zeman said in an exclusive interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman on Thursday.
“On the one hand, you have Kosovo, where there was the United Nations’ guarantee, but this guarantee was not secured, and on the other hand – Crimea, where the referendum was held,” Zeman stressed. “These are double standards and this is bad.”
