Czech-Slovak cooperation in the field of security is important, and the Czech Republic plays a significant role as a leading state in the NATO battle group stationed in Slovakia, where 447 Czech soldiers are currently deployed.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the "Gift for Putin" project in the Czech Republic announced the completion of the collection of 2.3 million dollars for the purchase of the RM-70 system and rockets for Ukraine.
