Czech President Václav Klaus told the Polish daily Rzeczpospolita on Monday that Europe would be entirely different without his Polish colleague Lech Kaczynski. Mr Klaus said he was now single-handed in the struggle for greater sovereignty of EU nations. Václav Klaus, said he considered the late Polish president a close friend, with whom he also talked about many things including art. The Czech head of state said Mr Kaczynski had given him a copy of Andrzej Wajda’s film Katyn about the murder of around 20,000 Polish officers by the Soviet secret service.
