"Theatrical performance": Klimkin on Zeman’s statement on "selling out Crimea"
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin believes that Czech President Milos Zeman cannot be "fixed," and suggests countering those who invited him to address the meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, where he said that Ukraine should agree with the Russian Federation on financial compensation or that in energy resources for the stolen Crimea.
"Leave Zeman, he cannot be fixed. Any theater has its directors and actors. Those who invited him to speak knew what he would say. It’s them whom we need to fight," Klimkin wrote on Twitter.
