On August 26, 2016, the website of so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" ("DPR") has announced on an opening of a representative office of the illegal self-proclaimed formation “DPR” in Ostrava, the Czech Republic.
According to this announcement: "On 1 September 2016 the solemn opening of the DPR Representative Office is to take place in Ostrava, the CzechRepublic."
The Embassy of Ukraine to the Czech Republic expresses its concern by this provocative action in the Czech Republic, which is considered as a part of the ideological hybrid war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and the civilized world as a whole. Moreover, the above action is an unconcealed and impudent humiliation towards the democratic values and institutions of Western civilization.
In this regard, the Embassy takes all necessary measures to prevent this provocation.
