Czech official warns of more Russia-related crises

The Czech deputy foreign minister, Tomas Pojar, has warned at the United Nations that there will be more crises in Europe brought about by Moscow's desire to test its neighbours and the international community as a whole.

Tomas Pojar, interviewed in the LA Times:

A new conflict can be created in Crimea . . . because of [Russia's] political and demographic and military presence. You have a lot of similarities to the situation in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but it is not exactly the same. We should pay real attention to Ukraine, . . . supporting economic stability and, as far as we can do it, political stability.
