    Don't drag the Czechs into this. Overall, corruption and cronyism are a huge problem in many of the former Eastern Bloc countries following the collapse of the USSR, but i honestly had no idea how bad it was in Slovakia, which is often held up as an example of a succesful transition to capitalism and democratic norms.

    Either that or they are being undermined by those shifty jews.

    Honestly, I don't know. The Slovaks have been going their own way since 1993. I'd say the russian secret services are helping the unrest and confusion over there as well.

    Some context material here: http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/12/23/the-kremlins-economic-grip-on-europe/
    Unfortunately, the russian influence in Europe keeps growing, the Czechs just re-elected a half-demented president who is a well known russian crony. The volume of misinformation and smear campaign reporting funded by russian services during the elections (late 2017) was unprecedented..

    Just kidding. The initial post is about Slovakia so I translated it to Slovak for you. They are kinda sensitive about those things. ;)

    One of the reasons Czechia decided to peacefully "depart"?
    Heh - I've been there. :drool:

    Slovakia made that decision and Czechia just said - OK. It happened in general elections in 1992 when Czechia voted for pro-EU parties and Slovaks elected politicians who only had one item on their program - separation from Czechoslovakia. I'd say the relations between the two nations have never been better now that we are two countries.

    So you are saying that russian secret service was behind crime in order to get pro-russian prime minister to resign? And italian mafia is also part of FSB?

    You would have great career in BBC or similar miss-information media outlet.

    It's depressing that I can't tell if this is a serious post or not.

    Are there all out brawls at the football matches, or does everyone just get drunk?

    I don't think they meet often and I don't really know anymore but I don't think it is worse than regular league matches where the hooligans beat each other up once in a while.
