Prague has become a hub for Russian activities in broader Central Europe
President Putin’s re-election for a fourth term in office has evoked mixed reactions in the Czech Republic, reflecting the different perceptions of Russia today. President Zeman, who is seen as a strong supporter of President Putin, presents Russia as a promising business partner, but many politicians and ordinary people in this country still see Russia as a threat. So is Russia under Putin a partner or a threat – that’s a question Daniela Lazarová from Radio Prague put to our Director, Petr Kratochvíl.

Election of Zeman shows limits and opportunities of Moscow's meddling
The pro-Russian Czech president Miloš Zeman (73) won the election from pro-European candidate Jiri Drahoš. This is good news for the Kremlin, and shoudl have been clinched by Russian disinformation. But is it that simple? Our security analyst Mark Galeotti puts things into perspective in his analysis for RaamopRusland.
