Czech Republic to provide attack helicopters, large-caliber ammo to Ukraine

The Czech Republic will provide additional attack helicopters and large-caliber ammunition to Ukraine. Besides, it will also assist in the training of Ukrainian military pilots, including those for the F-16s.

Notably, Czech Republic is one of the largest providers of military aid to Ukraine.

Till date, the country has sent 676 pieces of heavy equipment, including tanks and more than 4 million rounds of medium and large-caliber ammunition to Ukraine.

This means that every day, since the first day of the war, about 10,000 pieces of ammunition and at least one tank, rocket launcher, howitzer, etc. have been leaving the Czech Republic for Ukraine.

 Besides, last week a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Ministry of Strategic Industries of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic in the presence of the President of Ukraine and the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic.

The purpose of this Memorandum is to uphold military-technical cooperation, make joint efforts to support arms and ammunition production projects and other defense industry projects implemented by defense companies in Ukraine and the Czech Republic through various forms of partnership.

According to the document, the parties agree to support joint projects in the defense industry. The Memorandum provides for the conclusion of separate contracts between the entities of the two countries.
