Putin approved the annexation of the occupied Ukrainian regions. Poles and Czechs respond with humor
Annexation of the occupied territories of Ukraine announced by Vladimir Putin it outraged many world leaders as well as ordinary people in democratic countries. Also, almost all leading Western media indicate that Putin announced the Kremlin’s intention to annex almost one-fifth of Ukraine in gross violation of international law.
In connection with the pseudo-referenda carried out in the Russian-occupied territories of Ukraine and the decision of President Vladimir Putin to annex these lands on Monday, the Russian ambassador to Warsaw, Sergei Andreyev, was summoned to the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. During Andreyev’s meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the ambassador was presented with the Polish position that did not recognize pseudo-referenda in Ukraine and attempts to incorporate part of that country’s territory into Russia.
Russian aggression and the “theft” of Ukrainian territories was also condemned by Czech President Milos Zeman. In turn, Prime Minister Petr Fiala emphasized that the Czech Republic did not recognize the referenda on joining these territories with Russia and added that the Czech Republic still considered these territories to be part of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, one of the anonymous Twitter users started a real wave of memes that humorously comment on the illegal annexation. The Internet user published a map on his profile that divided the Kaliningrad Oblast into two parts. One would belong to Poland and the other to the Czech Republic. The satirical graphic was signed with the words: “It’s time to divide Kaliningrad so that our Czech brothers finally have access to the sea.”
The post immediately gained immense popularity – even Czech politicians made it available. One of them, Tomas Zdechovsky, even wrote: “How can you not love Poles :)”.
The compatriots of the Czech MEP picked up the idea and began to publish massively the content related to the pseudo-referenda conducted recently in Ukraine. They even created a Twitter profile for “new territory”.
“Welcome to the official profile of Kralovec. After a successful referendum, 97.9 percent of Kaliningrad’s inhabitants decided to join the Czech Republic and change the name of Kaliningrad to Kralovec,” we read.
The rest of the text below the video.
The Czech petition is also conquering the Internet. It said that Vladimir Putin proved that “there is nothing wrong with entering the territory of a foreign country, announcing a referendum and then annexing it”.
We can also find, among others, in the network to the photos of the US President Joe Biden and the Czech Republic’s foreign minister Jan Lipavsky, who allegedly agreed on the annexation of Kaliningrad by the Czech Republic.
Polish-Czech jokes do not seem to amuse the Russians. EurAsia Daily took the situation seriously.
“Zdechovsky said that (…) he supports the dubious idea of a Polish internet user, which concerned holding a referendum in the Kaliningrad Oblast and the division of the Russian region between the Czech Republic and Poland,” we read on the Russian portal.
The position of the Russians was decided by the MEP Zdechovsky, called “to the board”, who said that he was not surprised by such a reaction. According to Zdechovski, Putin should prepare for the fact that if he annexes the territory of Ukraine on the basis of pseudo-referenda, it will trigger “a discussion about whether the country should keep Kaliningrad”. The politician recalled that Kaliningrad, known in Czech as Kralovec, was founded in honor of the Czech king Přemysl Otakar II.
He also stressed that the Russians treated themselves too seriously, both in matters of politics and international relations. “It is important to show Moscow that we are not afraid of her and her threats, and that we are ready to support Ukraine in its fight for the return of all its territories” – emphasized the Czech politician.
