PRAGUE, January 20. /TASS/. Czech President Milos Zeman strongly condemns Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s statement saying it’s the USSR that invaded Germany and Ukraine, the president’s spokesman, Jiji Ovcacek, said on Tuesday.
“Even the drafted version [of Yatsenyuk’s statement] did not disperse doubts that the attempt was made to revise the results of World War II,” Ovcacek said.
Earlier, Zeman criticised the Ukrainian premier calling him in one of his latest interviews “a prime minister of war”.
On January 8, Yatsenyuk told German-state broadcaster ARD: “All of us still clearly remember the Soviet invasion of Ukraine and Germany.”
On January 9, Russia’s State Duma (the lower house of parliament) Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Alexey Pushkov called the Ukrainian prime minister’s statement “extreme form of cynicism". "The Ukrainian prime minister, who is seeking political capital in Germany and Europe, is distorting all well-known facts, which are backed in Europe itself - in Paris, Berlin, London and in the USA”, Pushkov said.
“Nobody disputes lawfulness of the anti-Hitler coalition’s actions. The USSR was its leading participant and it liberated Europe from Hitler, including Germany from Hitlerism,” Pushkov said.
