Okamura insists that up to 100,000 people may have turned up for the demonstration, including those on side streets.

“The aim of our demonstration is the necessity of change, mainly in solving the issues of energy prices, especially electricity and gas, which will cause the destruction of our economy already this autumn. We called on Prime Minister Petr Fiala to negotiate with us, but unfortunately we have no answer. So we will continue to push for this government to end. We will demand her resignation,” said event co-organizer Jiří Havel.

Among the protesters’ demands were withdrawal from the European Union and NATO and the country’s neutrality or “an end to the planned dilution of the nation by Ukrainian refugees.”

In response to the demonstration, Prime Minister Petr Fiala therefore said that it was called by forces that profess a pro-Russian orientation, are close to extreme positions and are against the interests of the Czech Republic.

“The interpretations of the events that I have had the opportunity to see so far point to strongly pro-Russian attitudes, and in my opinion, this does not correspond to the interests of the Czech Republic and our citizens,” added Fiala.

On the stage of Saturday’s event were people from the PES movement, the non-parliamentary Tricolors and former deputy Lubomír Volný, who drew the most attention to himself when he repeatedly fought in the House of Representatives. “The Czech Republic needs a Czech government. Fial’s government may be Ukrainian, perhaps Brussels, but definitely not Czech,” said the head of the Tricolor, Markéta Majerová Zahradníková.

Some politicians, including from the ODS, moderated Fial’s words to those who convened the demonstration. “A year ago, about a thousand people would have come to an event similar to today’s. They came today too. But I don’t believe that the other 69,000 were Putin fanatics. They were people worried about the future. Let’s take them seriously. I really don’t want to be right in my prediction from the House,” said Minister of Justice Pavel Blažek.

“I stand by my statement, which did not refer to the protesters, but to the organizers. The demonstration was organized by members of the Russian fifth column. There is enough evidence. Just look at who stood on the stage and what they said,” Prime Minister Petr Fiala wrote on Twitter on Monday.

“The harmful government should resign,” Tomio Okamura said in the Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday, just four days after the opposition ANO and SPD movements failed to pass a motion of no confidence in the government in the Chamber of Deputies.
