Milos Zeman: outspoken pro-Russian, anti-migrant Czech president

Milos Zeman: outspoken pro-Russian, anti-migrant Czech presidentCzech President Milos Zeman, who narrowly clinched a second five-year term on Saturday, has sown division with his strong anti-migrant and pro-Russian views, despite having vowed to be “the voice of all citizens” when first elected. The silver-haired 73-year-old cut down on his smoking and drinking after he became the Czech Republic’s first directly elected president in 2013, but he has stuck to his outspoken ways. A year after taking up the top job, the veteran leftwinger made clear his foreign policy preferences by visiting China and attending a forum on a Greek island that was organised by a Vladimir Putin ally who is a persona non grata in the United States.
