"It is the ammunition that has been prepared for such assistance, if approved by government. Ukraine is the Czech Republic's historical partner with whom we are developing defense cooperation and supporting its path to democracy. Therefore, it is natural that the Defense Ministry considered assistance," Zehmeister said.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the Baltic states have been green-lighted by the U.S. State Department to supply American-made weapons to Ukraine.
