On October 12, a meeting between politician Vladimir Milov and representatives of the Russian diaspora took place in Prague. Several dozen activists attended the meeting.
The meeting was attended by Czech Senator Marek Hilser, who was a candidate for the 2018 presidential election. He takes a proactive position on Putin policy. Marek Hilser, with a group of other senators and deputies of the lower house of the Czech parliament, founded the “Friends of Free Russia” platform, where they regularly discuss legislative initiatives and policies towards Putin.
During his trip to Prague, Vladimir Milov also met with senators and deputies who are representing the “Friends of Free Russia” platform. They discussed tougher sanctions against Putin and his entourage and support for Russian civil society.
At a meeting with the Russian diaspora, Senator Hilser and Vladimir Milov answered questions from Russians who permanently reside in Prague. The Russian politician explained how to participate more actively in Russian politics. Many people in the audience expressed their willingness to do so with enthusiasm.
As a result of the meeting, politicians expect that cooperation between Russians living in the Czech Republic will be strengthened and better coordinated. Representatives of Alexei Navalny’s team will provide all possible support to this.
The event was co-organized by the Kulturus organization (festivals of Russian contemporary culture).
