Czech Republic, allies will try to increase ammunition supplies to Ukraine – Petr Pavel
Czech President Petr Pavel says Ukraine does not have enough ammunition for a successful counteroffensive, so the Czech Republic, together with its partners, will work to increase their supply
This is what Ceske Noviny writes.
The Czech president acknowledged that through his extensive negotiations in Ukraine, it became evident that ammunition is the most crucial requirement for Ukraine's successful defense. While there is also a shortage of modern technologies, it is the lack of sufficient ammunition that poses the greatest limitation to the Ukrainian army.
Pavel emphasized that although allies provide Ukraine with highly effective equipment, the supply of ammunition is minimal, lasting only a few days. As a result, the equipment essentially becomes a warehoused asset, serving little purpose.
He further stated that efforts would be made to not only increase the supply of ammunition from existing stockpiles but also to collaborate with allies and other countries to swiftly fulfill Ukraine's needs.
On April 28, following the night shelling by the Russian army, Czech President Petr Pavel and Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová arrived in Kyiv. They also visited Bucha and Borodyanka.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Petr Pavel, and Zuzana Čaputová signed a joint declaration affirming their support for Ukraine's European and Euro-Atlantic integration.
It has also been announced that Ukraine and the Czech Republic will collaborate on six projects involving the production of small arms, training aircraft, and tank repair.
