Baroness Ashton "took Soviet money"
24. 11. 2009
Catherine Ashton, the new "Foreign Secretary" of the European Union "closely collaborated with the Soviet regime against the interests of her own country", says the right wing Czech newspaper IDnes. In the 1980s, she was the treasurer of the UK "Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament", which allegedly "accepted Soviet money".
Former Czech Vice-Premier for European Affairs Alexander Vondra sees this as a matter of concern. Czech EuroMPs for the right-of-centre Civic Democratic Party will apparently vote against the nomination of Catherine Ashton for the post of the EU Foreign Secretary, says IDnes.
"There can be no doubt that the Kremlin supported the CND activities," IDnes quotes Czech EuroMP Hynek Fajmon. "CND was the fifth column of the Soviet Union in the West." Ashton is also criticised by the UKIP EuroMP Gerard Batten, says IDnes.
