Poland accidentally invaded the Czech Republic last month

Soldiers patrol the Polish-Czech border during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Polish army mistakenly crossed the country’s border with the Czech Republic in late May before leaving there, the Czech foreign ministry told CNN.

The soldiers, who had guarded portions of the Polish-Czech border that were closed during the Crusades coronavirus pandemic, then began rejecting Czech citizens who tried to visit a church in their own country.

The snafu led the Czech embassy in Warsaw to take “immediate action” and notified its Polish counterpart, the Czech government told CNN, adding that Poland had still not officially explained why the country had wrongly annexed its neighbors.

“Our colleagues in Poland informally assure us that this incident is just a misunderstanding caused by the Polish military without hostile intentions, however, we still expect an official statement,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman told CNN.

“Polish soldiers are no longer present and our citizens can return to the site freely,” the spokesman added.

“We are still waiting for Poland’s official statement,” they repeated when asked how long Polish forces had been in the country.

The Polish Ministry of Defense also acknowledged a brief occupation on Friday.

“The placement of border posts is the result of misunderstanding, not deliberate action. It was immediately corrected and the case was resolved – also by the Czechs,” he told CNN in a statement.

The incident took place near Pielgrzymow, a small border village in southern Poland, located across a stretch of sparsely populated Czech countryside. The lonely road there serves as a boundary point between the two countries.

“The Polish army supports the Border Guard in protecting the country’s borders after its closure due to a coronavirus pandemic,” the Polish Ministry of Defense explained. “This operation is led by the Operational Command of the Armed Forces, which is in direct contact with the Border Guard.”

The Polish government did not confirm how long the army was present in the Czech Republic.

Borders between EU countries are often almost invisible because citizens enjoy freedom of movement throughout the bloc.

But the coronavirus pandemic has complicated the long-standing arrangement, with countries blocking the entry of foreigners to control the spread of the virus. Poland has blocking people from entering the country since March.

Poland was involved in several more serious border conflicts with the former Czechoslovakia during the 20th century. The two countries fought for seven days in the Silesia region in 1919, and Poland annexed the area around the city of Bohumin in 1938.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
