The President of the Czech Republic believes that prevention measures against Russia would be able to check its progress to the East of Ukraine.
Miloš Zeman believes that the NATO should use arrangements of deterrence against Russia with the aim to discourage Moscow’s military involvement in the affairs of Ukraine. It has been stated by the leader of the state at the talks with the NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, “Radio Prague” informs.
Miloš Zeman has noted that prevention is always better and cheaper than to fight an uncontrollable fire. However he opposed imposing economic sanctions against Russia.
According to the leader of the state, if Russia not stopped in Eastern Ukraine, the crisis is to snowball in South Ukraine and also in Transdniestria.
We remind that earlier Zeman offered that the NATO should place its troops on Ukrainian territory in case of Russia’s incursion in Eastern Ukraine.
The NATO has already increased its presence in Central Europe and the region of the Black Sea because of Russia’s aggressive actions after annexation of Crimea.
