The Czech foreign minister, Lubomír Zaorálek, says all possible action must be taken to prevent the possible breakup of Ukraine. Mr. Zaorálek told Czech Television that the only legitimate force in the country was its parliament. It voted to dismiss President Viktor Yanukovych, who fled the capital Kiev after opposition forces gained the upper hand. Speaking on TV Prima, Mr. Zaorálek said if Ukraine split into a pro-Western part and a part oriented towards Russia it would create a dividing line between individual spheres of influence.
