Czech Foreign Ministry condemns Russia’s actions in Crimea

The Czech Foreign Ministry has condemned Russia’s steps towards annexation of Crimea. In a statement released on Wednesday, the ministry said Russia’s approach was an unprecedented breach of international law, and a threat to peaceful coexistence of nations in Europe. The ministry noted that due to its own history of the 1930s, the Czech Republic was very sensitive to Russia’s actions, and would never consent to undermining Ukraine’s territorial integrity and annexation of Crimea.
