Ugh, it was a week, offers to say after the days that made press conferences an unexpectedly exciting genre full of twists and turns. With a silent prayer that no one will pull out a video by the end of the week, in which he visits patients in the intensive care unit behind the backs of doctors without protective equipment and lets them sign documents, we embark on the events of the day.
The coronavirus pandemic is back, and with it the popular national pastime – reading and interpreting legal texts.

Therefore, on Wednesday, the resort sent a request to EU Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni for a change in the EU directive, which would be widely available by such an adjustment of states, only for the entire Prime Minister Babiš to write it off two days later. “There was a misunderstanding with the Ministry of Finance, I certainly do not want to change the directive. All Member States would have to agree to enforce this. ” Babiš explains in a text by Markéta Boubínová. Therefore, according to him, the Czech Republic will only follow the path of a one-off reduction of VAT to zero.
To Babiš, energy prices and the EU once again. The Czech Prime Minister, as the only participant in the EU summit, refused to draw conclusions about rising energy prices. He wanted to push for emission allowances to be bought only by companies that do so goat because they produce emissions, writes Jan Moláček in a text that also requires that rising allowance prices make Agrofert more expensive. Classic words – chance?
And Babiš and the EU for the third time (are you making commas?). Kirill Shcheblykin and Jakub Zelenka looked at how the Czech Republic is preparing for the EU Council presidency. Exactly the presidency, which Babiš was supposed to call a “sandwich with sandwiches” some time ago. Now the prime minister denies that his government would underestimate the preparation, experts from coalitions that are preparing to take over the government, but claim that it may be too late to smooth the event.

The SPD dissolved its Prague organization.

It is the most difficult region for us, “says the current chairman Vítězslav Novák in a text by Barbora Janáková. In the city where random passersby admits to journaliststhat it is sometimes surprising that he urinates on the president’s fence from time to time.
Jana Ciglerová described the threatening problems experienced by women after the American state of Texas banned practically all abortions. Here is a quote that represents more than any description: “If a patient does not find a clinic to which she could undergo pregnancy, the abortion will say,“ look for instructions on the Internet, something I could eat to end it, or simply I’m not going to be Jan’s chilling text from the United States.

If, after all the news about politics, inflation, rising energy prices and who’s saying, you still think that maybe you’ll run into the woods, I’m thinking of your needs (and obviously this plan has already been attacked by someone in the newsroom). Petra Procházková interviewed traveler and survival expert Jaroslav Pavlíček. It was not easy to meet him, because, as Petra writes, Mr. Pavlíček does not have a mobile phone and he prefers to be alone in the wilderness. But the result is really worth it. You will learn from it what you are using in the jungle, croissants, an umbrella and whether it is good to eat human flesh. Judge for yourself:
Mention the croissants as well. Somehow I don’t understand why I should take on slippers in the jungle.
They are much better than a mat. Get out of here. The steps may push, but when one person puts them under his butt and the other under his shoulder blades, he is much higher above the ground.
