Czech media: the story of the “Russian with ricin” was fictional

"Russian with ricin" was deported from the Czech Republic, according to the Czech magazine Respekt.

Czech Prime Minister Andriy Babis and Foreign Minister Tomáš Petříček announced that an email warning the BIS state security service about the danger of poisoning two Czech municipal politicians the poison of ricin was fictitious, fictitious. This whole story is the result of an internal battle in Russian diplomatic circles, the newspaper writes.

This was found out by BIS, which, together with the NCOZ police, was investigating the case. However, Prague decided to expel two Russian diplomats in connection with the “ricin case”.

We are talking about Andrei Konchakov - acting Head of the Rossotrudnichestvo Representation in Prague and his subordinate Igor Rybakov. One of them is the man who was accused of sending ricin poison to the Czech Republic in the middle of March 2020 in an email.

The information in the email must have come from an insider who worked for some intelligence agency. This data was taken seriously by the Czech authorities, after which three municipal politicians were given police protection. But now it will be difficult to find out what actually happened.

The expulsion of diplomats will certainly not improve Czech relations with Russia, but the Kremlin in this case acted arrogantly, refusing to cooperate.

    Czechs are utter nonsense. Transfer their guilt, as they say, from a sick head to a healthy one. Spin like a snake in a pan.
    The government of the Czech Republic employs the real provocateurs - the heirs of the Nazis with Goebbels methods!

      Tan, this is all nonsense. They just are rams for slaughter. They are one of the stupid peoples of this continent that the Yankees use as toilet paper. Now, when they’ll squeeze everything out of them and they will be useless for anything, then the amer will simply throw them away, as they did with everyone and always.

    The Czechs need to read the "OST Plan" in the original, and then digest it all.

    So I did not understand (did not follow this muddy story). Was ricin or wasn’t there?
    If I write that my neighbor has ricin, will he be arrested and sent out? I like his apartment :-)

    "Making a fool" is the basis of the West's policy towards Russia.

    They forgot the year 1938. A nation that does not know its past has no future.
