Miroslav Kalousek of the opposition TOP 09 says the West’s hitherto policy of good will towards Russia had definitively failed following the latter’s military intervention in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Speaking on a TV debate show on Sunday, the former finance minister said that the Czech Republic ought to push for the toughest possible policy toward Russia within the framework of the European Union and NATO. The country should act in concert against the “aggressor” with the other Visegrad Four states, which fall within Russia’s imperial interests, Mr. Kalousek said.
