A new group calling themselves Zastavme velezradu (Let’s Stop High Treason) projected the word Velezrada (Czech for High Treason) on Prague Castle, the seat of President Miloš Zeman, last night.

After the publication of reports regarding the explosion at a munitions depot in Vrbětice in 2014, the public expected the reaction of the head of state.

However, President Miloš Zeman, through his spokesman Jiří Ovčáček, announced that he would not comment on the situation until the end of this week.

PM Babiš recently said that Russian involvement in explosions at a munitions depot in Moravia in 2014 does not constitute state terrorism. The operation was rather a botched attack on goods being purchased by a Bulgarian arms dealer.

“Miloš Zeman is an agent of a hostile country that invaded the Czech Republic and killed Czech citizens. He is a traitor, and as such he can no longer be the head of the state,” points out the group Zastavme velezradu.

In 2015, in a protest against President Milos Zeman, a group of artists has taken down the flag over the presidential residence in Prague and replaced it with a large pair of red boxer shorts.

The radical artists said they were protesting the views expressed by the Czech president, including his opposition to letting children with special needs study with other children.

The red shorts were the proper flag “for a man who has no shame.”
