Czech Communist lawmaker calls Ukrainian government "fascist regime"
Stanislav Grospič, representative of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, has called the Ukrainian government a "fascist regime."
The Czech politician made a snapping statement during a local TV news program, according to the Ukrainian Embassy in the Czech Republic.
"Unfortunately, these openly slanderous insults, unacceptable in a civilized world, did not see a proper response from a TV program host," the report says.
"Usually, we don't react to statements by Communists, especially since the Communist ideology, just like the Nazi one, is prohibited in our country. But given the fact that he holds the position of chairman of a parliamentary committee, we expect his statements will be condemned by the leadership of the Chamber of Deputies," the embassy said.
