From AFP via ynetnews.com:
The Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic has firmly opposed Russian President Vladimir Putin
visiting Prague to attend ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
Invited to attend events
by Czech President Milos Zeman, the Russian leader has thus far neither
accepted nor rejected taking part in the commemorations organized by
the European Jewish Congress from January 26 to January 27 in Prague and
Terezin, Czech Republic.
