The Czech prime minister promised Ukraine support “as long as necessary.”

The Czech Republic is one of the largest providers of various types of assistance to Ukraine and will continue to support it as long as necessary, Prime Minister Petr Fiala told reporters on Wednesday.

“The Czech Republic is one of the largest donors and suppliers of various types of assistance to Ukraine, and we will continue this assistance as long as Ukraine needs it. During negotiations with US President Joe Biden in Warsaw, I want to emphasize our active role (in supporting Ukraine), including within the framework of the Eastern wing of NATO, and I will give a few specific figures,” Fiala said before flying to Warsaw to attend a meeting of the leaders of the Bucharest Nine (B9) countries with Biden.

According to him, together with representatives of other B9 countries, he intends to discuss joint plans for further assistance to Ukraine.

The “Bucharest Nine” is the eastern flank of NATO, these are the countries that the war in Ukraine has affected the most. And it is in our joint interests to strengthen NATO’s defense on this eastern border, Fiala said, adding that the talks in Warsaw should help deepen cooperation between the B9 countries and strengthen security in Europe.
