According to him, Russia should be prepared for the fact that if it tries to annex someone else’s territory, then something can be taken away from it.

Czech MEP Tomasz Zdechovsky shared a satirical joke on his Twitter about the distribution of the Russian Kaliningrad region between Poland and the Czech Republic.

This is reported by the Czech edition iDnes . 

In particular, the politician reposted a tweet from an anonymous author from Poland.

“The time has come to divide Kaliningrad so that our Czech brothers finally have access to the sea,” the original note says.

In Russia, this joke has already been called a “revanchist statement.”

Zdekhovsky replied that Russia should be prepared for the fact that if it tries to annex foreign territory on the basis of fake referendums, this could provoke discussions about whether it should leave Kaliningrad.

“I believe that the debate is legitimate and that Russia should really consider its future international moves,” he stressed.

The politician added that the city was originally founded in honor of the Czech king Přemysl Otakar II. Zdekhovsky also said that he was not surprised that his joke was taken seriously in Russia.

“I think the Russians take themselves too seriously, both in terms of politics and in terms of international relations. We need to hold a mirror to them more and show that we are not afraid of them and their threats and that we are ready to support Ukraine in its struggle for the return of all territories,” summed up the Czech MEP.

As you know, before World War II, Kaliningrad belonged to Germany. However, the Potsdam Conference of 1945 decided to transfer most of the territory of East Prussia to the USSR. Thus, the Russian Federation received a new region. In the future, Germany in legal documents refused to claim these lands.

Attempted annexation of Ukrainian territories

On September 23-27, the Russian invaders held pseudo-referendums in the occupied parts of Kherson, Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Lugansk regions with the aim of joining the Russian Federation.

On September 30, Russian President Vladimir  Putin announced his readiness to annex the temporarily occupied territories  to Russia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation stated that the  nuclear doctrine would apply to the territories “attached” to the Russian Federation .

The countries of the G7 and the European Union have announced that they will impose sanctions against the Russian Federation for organizing these pseudo-referendums.

As UNIAN previously reported, President of Ukraine  Volodymyr Zelensky  convened a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council for September 30. In response to the attempted annexation of territories  , Ukraine applied for NATO membership .

      • I know from personal experience that Czechia and Czechs in general are very anti-Russia and hate putler.
        Therefore it takes a lot of effort by the putinazis to organize such events in order to fool the world into thinking that there is a large putler fan base there, when there definitely isn’t.

  1. “The time has come to divide Kaliningrad so that our Czech brothers finally have access to the sea,”
    I’m all for it.
