The German Internet publication World Economy conducted its own investigation into the alleged involvement of Russian special services in the explosions at military depots in 2014 in Vrbetica and found signs of an information attack in the accusations of the Czech authorities.
The attention of the publication, in particular, was attracted by the anti-personnel mines of the Czech army, which exploded in warehouses. Back in 1997, the Czech Republic joined the Ottawa Agreement on Antipersonnel Mines. According to him, by 2014, charges of this type should not have been in storage.
In addition, the mines have been in storage for over 20 years. From the experience of the OSCE it follows that for such a long time, explosives have the property of decomposition. This can lead to spontaneous detonation, especially if not properly stored.
In addition, the journalists found it strange that the Russians were exiled for alleged sabotage in warehouses. However, a long time has passed since 2014. During this time, a change of diplomatic staff took place at the Russian embassy in Prague.
A plausible interpretation of Prague’s statement is that Kiev’s Eastern European partners tried to mobilize the United States, which, in their opinion, did not provide adequate support in the confrontation with Russia, the newspaper believes.
