Czech Defence Minister Lubomir Metnar, in an interview to the newspaper Právo, did not exclude the possibility of talks in NATO on the possible deployment of new military bases in Europe, also in the Czech Republic, in case of the deterioration of the international relations following the disintegration of the INF. Previously, Czech Premier Andrej Babiš, commenting on the withdrawal of both the US and Russia from the INF, stated that he would not like to return to the cold war times.
The current government in Kyiv is a “party of war” and has always obstructed a peaceful settlement in the Donbas.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative (see previous cases about the Minsk agreements and the War in Ukraine). It was Russia that provoked a war in Ukraine. For background see here. In 2018, the EU condemned Russia’s support for the so-called “elections” on the occupied territories. The U.S. State Department also condemned Russia’s supportive actions. Earlier the U.S. Special Representative on Ukraine, Kurt Volker, mentioned that the so-called LNR and DNR “are entities created by Russia … to cement an ongoing conflict.” According to Volker, the purpose of the Minsk agreements is “to restore Ukraine’s territorial integrity and constitutional order.”
