Former President of the Czech Republic believes that the Crimea has always belonged to Russia
The former head of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus said in an interview to the Austrian edition of the Dyje the press that the annexation of Crimea to Russia did not contribute, as is commonly believed in the West, the conflict in Ukraine, but it was only a natural reaction to replacement of power, the events on the Maidan And the attacks on the Russian-speaking population." It is quite clear that the Crimea was never part of Ukraine. He always belonged to Russia. And I don't see any tragedy, " said Klaus.- the basic cause of the incident, according to my point of view, was a domestic crisis in Ukraine. Without Maidan there would be the annexation of the Crimea ".
