According to Klaus, the conflict between East and West has been triggered by the Ukrainian crisis. It's hard for me to say this but I fear that the Ukrainian crisis has bee exploited to create a new conflict between East and West, which should not have happened. The West took advantage of Ukraine's internal problems, the Russians merely reacted to what happened in Ukraine, which is not the root cause of the problem claimed the former Czech president.
If I look at the conflict as an internal Ukrainian matter, then I believe the conflict should be solved in Ukraine through dialogue, there is no other way. This conflict can't be solved in Moscow, Washington or Brussels.
Klaus also reiterated his earlier views about the possibility of the break-up of Ukraine. In this context, he recalled that Czechs and the Slovaks separated amicably and resolved the break-up of Czechoslovakia without conflict.
