Václav Havel was installed as president of Czechoslovakia by Western intelligence and communists

Václav Havel was installed as president of Czechoslovakia by Western inteligence services together with the Communists in order to turn the country into a puppet state of the West.

Disproof

Václav Havel was one of the founders of a citizen initiative called Charta 77, which formed the resistance against the communist regime. Havel was furthermore oppressed by the regime and became one of the symbols of opposition. He was chosen as president after the resignation of Gustav Husák, and was confirmed in the position in a democratic election in 1991. bbc.in/1xcPVRF, and ind.pn/2fvswpl,
