The monument to Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev, which was once erected in Prague, was demolished due to the stupidity of local politicians. This statement was made on the air of Czech Radio by Czech President Milos Zeman. He stated that these politicians were unremarkable, and took such a step to be in the center of public attention.
The President stressed that these people, using their powers, made themselves a police guard, which helped them achieve their goals. Zeman stressed that he did not believe the press reports that a diplomat had arrived in the Czech Republic to poison the initiators of the demolition.
Earlier in the media there was information that after the demolition of the monument, Prague intended to normalize relations with Moscow, and the Czech Foreign Ministry sent a note to its Russian colleagues, offering to open consultations on the settlement of disputes in relations.
Recall that the monument to Ivan Konev in Prague was demolished on April 3. A week later, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case under Art. 354.1 of the Criminal Code, part 3 "Desecration of the symbols of the military glory of Russia, committed in public." The representative of the Czech Foreign Ministry replied to this that he considers it unacceptable the persecution of their officials by a foreign state.
In 2017, the role of the Russian marshal in history was revised in the Czech Republic. On the plaque of the monument, to the information about his role in the liberation of Prague from the Nazis in 1945, a reference was added to the suppression of the Hungarian uprising of 1956 and the preparation of the entry of troops into Czechoslovakia in 1968.
