Czech Prime Minister Andriy Babis wrote on social media Twitter and Facebook an intriguing post that promised to “tell the truth tomorrow.”
The message, typed in capital letters, appeared on the pages of the politician at 19:00 on 15 July. There were no comments on these recordings, which allowed the Czech media to suspect that the accounts were hacked.
The network edition Novinky said, citing a source close to the prime minister, that Babish himself left the message. He intends to announce something on Friday, July 16, but it is not yet known what exactly will be discussed.
In June, Babis announced that the Czech authorities wanted to re-establish relations with Moscow. The politician noted that consultations on further relations with Russia will be organized in Prague. He stated that representatives of the Czech Foreign Ministry and all parliamentary parties will participate in the consultation meetings.
Relations between Moscow and Prague have deteriorated after the Czech Republic accused Russia of involvement in the explosions at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica in 2014. Moscow denies the charges. As a result, 18 diplomats were expelled from the Czech Republic. Moscow responded by declaring 20 employees of the Czech embassy persona non grata. Later it became known that Russia and the Czech Republic would equalize the number of employees in the embassies.
