In a conversation with Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed gratitude for assistance in combating the Russian aggression and the exceptional attitude to Ukrainian refugees in the Czech Republic.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Twitter.

“I have thanked Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala for assisting the Ukrainian people in the fight against the Russian aggression. Noted a significant humanitarian, security assistance, the exceptional attitude to the Ukrainian refugees, who received a temporary protection status in the Czech Republic. We really appreciate this!” Zelensky wrote.
