Czech police have charged 49 people with publicly endorsing and supporting the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, Czechia's Radio Prague reported on Nov. 29.

There are currently 86 such cases in that country.

Police statistics show that the number of these cases is continuing to increase, Police Presidium spokesman Ondřej Moravčík said.

Czech police recorded 83 cases of approval of the Russian invasion and charged 44 people in October. And since the beginning of the full-scale Russian war against Ukraine, the total number of Ukraine-related complaints has exceeded a thousand. However, not all of these complaints reach the level of a criminal violation.
