Prague, May 13 (Prensa Latina) The Czech Republic on Thursday acknowledged the worst time of its relations with Russia since 1989 amid the exchange of mutual expulsions of diplomats, after unfounded accusations of the country against Moscow.

The Czech Minister of International Relations Yakub Kulhanek noted that although the ties between the two States were far from being the best since then, they are now at their lowest level.

During a videoconference arranged by the Atlantic Council in Washington, the newly appointed FM affirmed; however, that his nation was in no way seeking an escalation of the conflict with Russia.

‘We should have reacted strongly and decisively in the case of the fire in a powder keg in the town of Vrbetice, in 2014,’ commented the head of Czech diplomacy, alluding to the accusations brought against Moscow for that incident.

The Kremlin initially denied any involvement in the accident almost seven years ago, which caused detonations at the ammunition depot, leased to the Army by the Bulgarian company Imex Group.

Although at the time, the Bulgarian prosecutor’s office investigated the possible responsibility of the Bulgarian company in the incident, now the government of Prime Minister Andrej Babis considers that Russian security and intelligence were involved.
