Senate Foreign Affairs Committee calls on government to ask for apology and compensation from Russia

The Senate’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Security has called on the government to revise its relations with the Russian Federation in a way that would be beneficial for both sides. Members of the committee believe that this should include an apology and compensation for the explosion at the Vrbětice munitions depot in 2014, which was caused by Russian GRU agents according to Czech intelligence. The position was announced by the head of the committee, Senator Pavel Fischer, on Wednesday.
