From the beginning of the Russian invasion, the Czech Republic has been one of Ukraine's biggest supporters.

The Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic initiates an increase in spending on military assistance to Ukraine. The amount should be about 600-700 million Czech crowns (up to 30 million dollars - ed.). This was stated by Czech Defense Minister Yana Chernokhova, Novinky reports.

It is very important that help is continuous. The Czech Republic is one of those countries that has been helping for a long time. For the government meeting, I have prepared additional military materials in the amount of about 600-700 million Czech crowns, she said.

To date, the Czech Republic has supplied Ukraine with weapons, including heavy equipment such as tanks and helicopters, and military materials worth more than CZK 3.5 billion (about 140 million euros - ed.).

Chernokhova recalled that the Ministry of Defense also cooperates with the Ukrainian Embassy in Prague, purchasing weapons and military equipment with money transferred to the embassy's bank account. So far, the embassy has received about 1.2 billion Czech crowns (about $52 million - ed.) in this way.

In the Czech Republic, they believe that the end of Russia's war against Ukraine should be the victory of the Ukrainian army.
