Interior Ministry: Anti-establishment groups dominating extremist scene

The Czech extremist scene continues to be dominated by anti-establishment groups, whose representatives do not respect state institutions, often admire the Putin regime, and spread false or misleading information and conspiracy theories, according to the Czech Interior Ministry's report on extremism for the second half of last year, published on Friday. More recently, disputes have emerged between members of the Romany and Ukrainian communities over real and fictional incidents, which some disinformers exploit on social media. The police registered close to 200 hate crimes last year, and prosecuted 98 people, mostly for violence against a group of people.
