The first ever office of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) will open in Europe, announced the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this unrecognized separatist entity. This will be the first officially registered DNR office in Europe and its official representative in CZ is Nela Liskova, a leader of the Czech public organization Narodni Domobrana (People’s Militia), writes the DRN site. Liskova is referred to as the DNR Honorary consul in the Czech Republic.
Certain Ukrainian media were also not beyond repeating this fake story.
According to the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “the self-declared Donetsk people’s Republic cannot have any accredited diplomatic or consular office in the Czech Republic because the DNR is not a state. The Czech Republic does not recognize this entity and we do not have any diplomatic relations with this group.”
The Czech Narodni Domobrana group are known for their xenophobic and pro-Russian views, their members have visited the occupied territories in Ukraine several times.
Czech blogger Tomas Peszynski writes that Nela Liskova really did register an organization called the DNR Representative center. Peszynski visited the organization’s address and found a derelict looking one story house with sealed windows.
