There is a chance for providing Ukraine with military equip
Czechia's Ambassador to Ukraine Radek Matula has said there is a possibility to provide Ukraine with certain types of military equipment based on export licenses.
"A possibility has opened for cooperating in the provision of several types of military equipment to Ukraine – of course, based on the standard process of export licensing. Until now, there were policy limitations on this from the Czech government. Since the winter of 2014 there was a ban on supplying military equipment and materials to Ukraine. We have now made this practice standard. This means that for each deal a license will be given," Matula said in an interview with the Kyiv-based Ukrayinska Pravda e-zine.
"We indeed believe it is important to keep the unity of the European Union, and therefore support sanctions against Russia until the full implementation of the Minsk peace agreements. Even after the situation in eastern Ukraine is resolved, Czechia will insist keeping sanctions in place regarding Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea," the ambassador said.
