“Russians lack imagination”: Czechs on the case of Ivan Safronov

On the popular Novinky.cz website, users actively commented on the case of Russian journalist and adviser to the head of the Roskosmos corporation, Dmitry Rogozin, Ivan Safronov, who is accused of transmitting classified information to the Czech special services.

Reader Reviews:

It is believed that Safronov’s case involves the transfer of information about Russian arms supplies to the Middle East and Africa. It turns out that journalism about the sale of Russian weapons is now spying? [...] They have some kind of mess in their head

- resents František Vágner.

We are slowly but surely becoming the No. 1 enemy of Russia through similar actions. However, Russophobes will definitely be pleased

- writes Jiří Langweil.

The journalist is waiting for suicide by jumping out of the window, like his father. In addition, he might accidentally slip and fall onto a knife in the pre-trial detention center.

- ulcerative Radek Novák, Čečelice.

Safronov is not so stupid as to transmit any information to the Czech Republic, since his salary was certainly high. Yes, and we do not produce any spaceships

- states Jan Tauš.

Democratic states are not interested in any secret information from abroad, therefore they will not violate the laws of a foreign state [...] only totalitarian dictatorships do it

- points out Jan Novák.

Opponents of the Kremlin dictator fall out of windows and fall under cars not only abroad, but also in Russia. [...] Under his leadership, she will never prosper, as with any dictator in any other country.

- wrote by Martin Novak.

The Russians never loved us, Czechs and Poles, so it's ridiculous to make this nonsense about the Slavic brotherhood. In 1938, when the purge ended in pre-war Russia, the NKVD leadership received an order from the People’s Commissar of Internal Affairs, Yezhov, whom Stalin ordered to focus on national minorities and arrange a major process. Czechs from Volhynia were victims, and on the day of St. Wenceslas, on September 28, 1938, several thousand people were executed. The Munich crisis was unfolding at that time, when neighboring states divided Czechoslovakia

- recalls Jan Dvořák.

Russian killers lack imagination. He is not even trying to disguise something. Recently, doctors who have criticized viral treatments have also often fallen out of windows.

- said Petr Gabriel.

    But right ... there is absolutely no fantasy. Is it the case of the killers who arrived in the Czech Republic in order to kill a couple of officials at the level of our village council in revenge for the demolition of the monument to Konev ......

    This is not yet a training manual for them, the system is shaking, they will begin to whine about the mass repressions and remember the Stalinist times.
    After all, in a week they are beheaded: Khabarovsk Territory; Roscosmos press service and Vladivostok Aquarium. winked

      Basically, indirectly and accidentally. smile Certain conclusions can be drawn, and without getting on hand drawings, certificates, samples. Somewhere I saw something, heard, respectively, made certain conclusions. And he visited interesting places, talked with state secrets. Someone accidentally let slip, something accidentally saw, and so on.
      Try to see from this angle "Military Acceptance", people go to many places.

        This is not an answer to my question, but just an excuse.
        Another additional question. How could all kinds of marginal individuals be admitted to the "Military Acceptance"?

          What is the excuse? I have nothing to make excuses for you. hi
          I explained how secret information could become known to a journalist.
          Do you think they give them secret drawings to look through, documents, samples of weapons to disassemble?
          What makes you think that there are marginals in the "Military acceptance"? belay

                What you wrote is a stupid attempt to "smear" the person who issued the state secret.

                  Safronov did not work at Military Acceptance, he worked at Kommersant, for the last month and a half Rogozin has been a media advisor.
                  You, apparently, misunderstood, I advised you to look at the "acceptance" in order to understand where the journalists are and what they can see.

                    The FSB has summoned this fruit more than once for conversations (they explained ...). And after such conversations, a few years later they opened a case of treason ... The Czech Republic is seen here as a case of "leakage" of information about poisons from Russian diplomats. There is a provocation, but the consequences are serious - the expulsion of two Russian diplomats from the Czech Republic. Perhaps Safronov was involved here ...
