Czechia to jail people for social media posts supporting Russian invasion

Czechia, a NATO and EU member state, has threatened its citizens with a three-year prison sentence for expressing support for Russia in the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

A press release by the country’s Attorney General Igor Stříž stated: “The Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office considers it necessary to inform citizens that the current situation associated with the Russian Federation’s attack on Ukraine may have implications for their freedom of expression.”

“Freedom of speech also has its limits in a democratic state governed by the rule of law,” the AG added.
