Help from Czechia

Czechia stands as one of Ukraine's main allies, supporting our country since the onset of the full-scale invasion by Russian occupiers. Throughout the war, Prague has provided not only humanitarian but also military assistance.

For instance, in mid-October, Czechia announced a joint effort with Denmark to supply Ukraine with infantry fighting vehicles, combat tanks, heavy weaponry, and other equipment from both new production and Czech private company stocks, funded by the Danish government.

At the end of November, Czechia donated up to 2.5 million euros (approximately 60 million crowns) to the NATO Trust Fund for non-military aid to Ukraine.
