PM Fiala: Czechia ought to have ambassador in Russia

Czechia ought to have an ambassador in Russia, Prime Minister Petr Fiala said in a video debate for the Czech daily Deník on Thursday, although he added that he could not say how long the position would remain vacant. He said that filling the role in Moscow was a goal for the government but was not specific about the timeline.

The current Czech ambassador to Russia, Vítězslav Pivoňka, has been recalled by the government and will be leaving his post at the end of this month.
