The Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic plans to initiate the filing of a constitutional complaint against the President of the country Milos Zeman due to the alleged declassification of information during his televised address to fellow citizens on April 25. This was announced on April 26 by the chairman of the upper house of parliament Milos Vystrchil.

“I suppose that we will deal with the possibility of filing a complaint in connection with the admitted treason to the Motherland. But first of all, the necessary information must be collected together, and also listened to how experts look at this situation. [по конституционному праву]”, – Czech Television quotes him.

According to the speaker, the collection of signatures has already begun in the republic, demanding to file a constitutional complaint against Zeman, in which the president will be accused of treason.

Earlier that day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that the statements of the Czech authorities about the explosions at the ammunition depot in Vrbetica are confusing and not very sane.

A day earlier, Milos Zeman, during a televised address, did not rule out the possibility that the situation around the story with the explosions in the warehouses in Vrbetica could be a game of the special services. He pointed out that the intelligence report did not provide evidence of the involvement of “Russian agents” in this incident. Also, the President of the Czech Republic urged to wait for the results of the investigation of the incident before drawing conclusions. According to the Czech leader, two main reasons for the explosion are being considered: careless handling of ammunition and interference by foreign special services, writes.

At the same time, Zeman indicated that he approved the proposal of the Cabinet of Ministers to expel 18 employees of the Russian Embassy, ​​since they were considered employees of the special services, and he “does not like intelligence officers.” The Czech leader expressed confidence that the “mutual cannibalism” of the embassies of the two countries is over.

On April 17, Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babis announced that the country’s authorities suspect the Russian special services of involvement in the explosion at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica in 2014. On the same day, the Czech Republic announced its decision to expel 18 Russian diplomats.

Russia responded by declaring 20 employees of the Czech embassy in Moscow persona non grata.
