Czech Republic to provide Ukraine with humanitarian aid worth EUR 200,000

The Czech Republic will provide a number of countries, including Ukraine, with personal protective equipment to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The government of the Czech Republic made a relevant decision at an extraordinary meeting on Thursday, December 10, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

In particular, Ukraine, Belarus, Kosovo and Montenegro will receive humanitarian aid totaling CZK 17.3 million (about EUR 657,000).

Ukrainian Ambassador to the Czech Republic Yevhen Perebyinis told Ukrinform that Ukraine would receive personal protective equipment worth CZK 5.2 million (EUR 200,000). The Fire Rescue Service of the Czech Republic (FRS CR) will deliver a cargo consisting of 100,000 masks, 10,000 FFP2 respirators, 10,000 boot covers, 5,000 protective suits, and 1,000 goggles to Lviv next week. These pieces of personal protective equipment will later be distributed among the regions.

In June, the government of the Czech Republic approved the MEDEVAC assistance program for a number of countries in need of support. Ukraine was among them. The aid worth CZK 5 million is aimed, among other things, at improving health care and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Ukrainian medical institutions.
