He told about it in interview to one of Czech TV channels, reports Rus.Media.
Zeman said that he would not apologize for statements about the Russian annexation of Crimea, as just expressed a personal opinion.
He stressed that Ukraine may demand from him an official apology, as required by the rules of diplomacy, though he did not intend to do so, because never apologizes for his own opinion.
Zeman recalled that previously he has repeatedly called the annexation of the Crimea illegal, but now “it is important that the Crimea is in the possession of Russia.”
“And I can’t imagine any Russian government, which refused it”, – concluded the Czech President.
As you know, during his address to the deputies of the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe the President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman has called the loss of Ukraine’s Crimea “completed thing” and offered to resolve the issue with the help of payments of Ukraine in the form of oil or gas.
