Answering the question whether it is possible now to define the relations between Moscow and Prague as tense, Zakharova said: “We would very much not want, we do everything to avoid it”. “We believe that these relations should develop on a mutually respectful basis, and that was always a good reason, why we see a chain of a number of things another direction – I have a big issue,” she said on air of radio station “Echo of Moscow”.

“what we see now in the Czech media or the actions of a number of Czech politicians and public figures, is simply bewildering. Because it is the natural or irreversible but there are ways their normal solutions, and in this case we are talking about some endless man-made problems, which that could not, and the appearance of which clearly speaks of their artificial nature,” she said.

Zakharov stressed that relevant agencies must provide evidence or refute such statements.

on Monday, the Prague weekly Respekt, citing a source in the local security services have alleged that three weeks ago in Prague came a man with a Russian diplomatic passport, which was in my suitcase deadly poison ricin. The man then proceeded to the Embassy of the Russian Federation to his waiting car of the diplomatic mission.

They are associated with the demolition of the monument to Marshal Konev and the renaming of the square in front of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the area of Boris Nemtsov.
