    This is just some more intrigue in my neighborhood. I was very much on the side of these protestors. I go to Prague pretty often, and the Czech anti-Kremlin vigilance is something I respect a lot as a Polak. I still have a hard time believing that this man is PM, given his disturbing pro-Kremlin tendencies.

    Edit: btw, being a Polak-American, I find it really insane that Russian influence has reached the White House, and permeated the GOP. At the same time, I find it so cute and innocent when some folks in the USA say things like “oh, yeah, it’s always Russia, haha.” Where I’m from, it literally is... welcome to the club.

      “claims” as a noun.

      “claims” as a noun.

      Babiš, 35, tracked down to Switzerland, where he was living with his mother, the prime minister’s first wife, said he had been persuaded to go to Crimea at a time when police were seeking to question him. Babiš, who has a history of mental health problems, had been given the choice of “taking an extended holiday” or being admitted to a psychiatric hospital.

      Once in Crimea he was forcibly detained by two Russians, one of whom was a psychiatrist who had previously treated him during a stay in a Prague mental hospital, he claimed.
