Final Word from Wednesday, March 2, 2022

Those who cheered the blocking of websites marked by VZ Military Intelligence as disinformation might not realize it won't necessarily stop there. Ex-PM Mirek Topolánek, who works for the Slovak importer of Russian natural gas, called on Sun. for the seizure of German gas in underground Czech storage facilities. He wants a state of emergency to be declared, the gas supplies to be frozen, and a swap to be negotiated. That would provoke a negative reaction from Germany, which could reverberate to other businesses. A state of emergency could also be declared under the Migration Preparedness Plan of Interior Min. Vít Rakušan. He hasn't explained what might be done if the number of refugees rose sharply, but the crisis law allows for people's homes, cars and assets to be seized. Blocking the websites created an atmosphere of "you're either with us, or against us." A state of emergency for seizing natural gas or dwellings would pit quite a few more people against the Fiala government.
