The Czech Republic rejects militarization of Crimea and the Sea of Azov.

“During the meeting with Ukrainian Minister Pavlo Klimkin I reassured him of our full support. Czechia will not recognize the annexation of Crimea by Russia, we reject militarization of the peninsula and of the Sea of Azov. We stand by Ukraine in difficult times,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Tomáš Petříček posted on Twitter following the meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in Brussels.
