“For too long, we have hoped that Putin’s Russia is different, that it’s better. This lesson has shown that it is not. And we have to be ready”
Czech President Petr Pavel and his Slovak counterpart Zuzana Caputova visited Ukraine on Apr. 28, 2023. For Pavel, it was his first visit to Ukraine since he became the Czech president. The two leaders visited war-torn villages and towns in the Kyiv region.
“With Zuzana Caputova, we both perceive the value of freedom and justice. It is hard to see with your own eyes that Ukrainians are paying the highest price for it. The blood and lives of their own citizens,” the Czech president wrote on Twitter.
Caputova wrote both leaders brought a message of friendship, solidarity, and support. “Slovakia, Czechia, and Ukraine share parts of common history — and we also share our common future,” said Caputova.
