The Czech Republic to send armaments worth from $26m to $30m to Ukraine
The Czech Republic is sending additional weaponry to Ukraine, as government officials and local media report.
Czech Defense Minister Jana Cernochova told public broadcaster CT on May 29, 2022, that Prague intends to send armaments worth $26 million to $30 million to Kyiv soon.
“It’s crucial that the aid is steady,” she said, adding that the country has sent more than $150 million in military aid supplies since the start of Russia’s invasion on February 24, 2022.
Cernochova did not provide details on the type or extent of the military aid for security reasons but said that heavy weaponry would be included.
Czech media have reported that T-72 tanks, BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles, Dana howitzers, and potentially Soviet-made combat helicopters would be among the supplies provided.
Meanwhile, Poland is also sending additional weaponry, giving Ukraine 18 AHS Krab self-propelled howitzers, Polish public radio reported on May 29, 2022.
