I didn’t comment the story at the time because it seemed so absurd on the face of it, but who knows?
“The entire case came into being as a result of internal feuding among workers at the embassy… with one of them sending made-up information to our (counterintelligence service) about a planned attack on Czech politicians,” Babis said in a statement carried live on television.
“We are interested in having good relations with all countries, but we are a sovereign state and such actions are unacceptable on our territory.”
Three politicians including the mayor of Prague were given police protection after reports that a Russian man who could be a threat to them had arrived to Prague.
The Russian Embassy denounced the decision announced by Babis as a “fabricated provocation”.
Who are a dime a dozen, anyway.
Here are some of the widely-followed Twitter accounts, who spread the false story. pic.twitter.com/WZfRqZHR50
