Don't you love Russia? After all, they just do what they like.
The current Prague leadership simply likes to provoke the government of their country and those who are abroad.
The mayor of [Prague] did not fully utilize his brain. He should have told Putin that, they say, we are sending the statue back on behalf of all our people!
The Soviet Union started the Second World War, so why are they so upset if they remove some statue?
You are so poorly educated - how old are you?

Since the outbreak of World War II [...] Russia owed us all about $ 100 trillion, plus an apology. [...] Since 1917, Russia has only been doing that is terrorizing the world.
Putin is simply not able to let go, like a bad ex-husband.
What does Russia care about what the Czechs do in their cities?
