President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman announced that May 9 (Victory Day) he would meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the capital of Russia, reports Joinfo.ua with reference to the Czech news agency Parlamentni listy.

In an interview with reporters, Czech president said that on Victory Day he would go to Moscow, otherwise he "would have insulted 150,000 Russian soldiers who died during the liberation of Czechoslovakia."

Commenting on the military conflict in the Donbas, Milos Zeman said that "the territorial integrity of Ukraine needs to be preserved." However, in this case, the President of the Czech Republic stresses the need for decentralization of Ukraine, recalling that President of Ukraine "had promised a special status in Donetsk and Luhansk."

In addition, Zeman expressed his confidence that Russia did not intend to attack the Baltic States, because it might be its "political and military suicide."

At the same time, in a recent interview to a Russian journalist, Putin confirmed that annexation of the Crimean peninsula was a well-planned operation.
