Citizens of Ukraine will take part in work at Czech enterprises.
The Czech Republic will start producing weapons for Ukraine in large quantities. For this purpose, thousands of Ukrainians will also come to the country to work at Czech arms production enterprises.
As the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Czech Republic Tomas Kopechny reported, NATO partners will finance such an initiative. First, the modernization and repair of facilities will be carried out, and then the production of military equipment will begin immediately.
“This is not secret information. Citizens of Ukraine already work in the Czech industry, including the defense industry. We did not start going to Ukraine yesterday or last year, we have been doing it since 2015. At that time, we tried to respond to Russian aggression by strengthening Ukraine’s defense capabilities. For Ukrainians, the war began immediately after the Maidan. It is about the gradual increase of Ukrainian workers,” said Kopechny.
The official added that the Czech Republic made such a decision after a meeting between Volodymyr Zelenskyi and Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Petr Fiala.
