Ex-president Klaus warns against Ukraine break-up

Former Czech president Václav Klaus has warned against the break-up of Ukraine. In a statement released on his institute’s website on Friday, Mr Klaus said the West irresponsibly fuelled an illusion of Ukrainian radicals that the country had a choice between Russia and the EU. That choice, according to the former Czech president, will inevitably lead to the collapse of the country, which seems to have already begun. Mr Klaus also suggested that no new election can solve the ongoing crisis.
