A Russian historian sacked from his post following criticism of the occupation by Russia of Crimea spoke on Friday at Brno’s Masaryk University. Andrej Zubov accepted the opportunity after turning down an offer to teach at Brno, one of several offers from foreign universities after he was dismissed from Moscow’s State Institute for International Relations. He angered authorities by comparing Russia’s actions over Crimea to Nazi Germany’s policies ahead of WWII, including the takeover of Austria and seizure of the Sudetenland. In Brno on Friday, Mr Zubov stressed that the Putin regime was "not Russia", saying there were Russians at home who opposed steps taken by the regime in neighbouring Ukraine.
