The Czech initiative raised 1,6 billion euros in military aid for Ukraine

The Czech Republic's initiative to accelerate the delivery of weapons to Ukraine has raised 1,6 billion euros, and the first delivery will take place in a few days, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala said last night.

He emphasized that the funds were donated by 15 member states of the European Union and NATO, but did not provide details.

Fiala reiterated the position of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg that Western countries should lift restrictions that prohibit Ukraine from using donated weapons to attack Russian territory.

Yesterday's meeting in Prague was attended by the Prime Ministers of Ukraine, the Netherlands, Latvia, Denis Schmihal, Mark Rutte, Mette Frederiksen, Evika Silina and Polish President Andrzej Duda.

A joint statement released after the meeting stated that the current funding "is expected to provide a donation of half a million pieces of artillery ammunition before the end of the year."

It is also indicated that the initiative will continue as long as necessary.

Duda announced that Poland is ready to help transport ammunition to neighboring Ukraine as part of the Czech initiative. While the Netherlands said it will deliver parts of the Patriot air defense system to Ukraine and is in talks with other countries to assemble the full system.
