Czech assistance to Ukraine

Czechia is ready to help Ukraine implement several points of the Peace Formula aimed at ending the war with Russia.

At the end of September, the Czech Ministry of Defense announced that the country would transfer the license for the production of assault rifles to Ukraine, called the CZ BREN 2.

In mid-October, it was announced that Czechia, along with Denmark, would supply Ukraine with IFVs, combat tanks, heavy weaponry, and other equipment in the coming months, both newly manufactured and from the warehouses of Czech private companies, at the expense of the Danish government.

The Czech Senate recently extended the mandate for the military training of Ukrainian soldiers until the end of 2024.
