The delegation of the Czech Republic led by Minister of Defense Jana Černochová visited Ternopil region. The delegation members and the leadership of the region commemorated the fallen Czechoslovak legionnaires and discussed the support for the Ukrainian army.

"The Czech Republic stands in solidarity with Ukraine. The visit of the delegation of the Czech Republic led by Minister of Defense Jana Černochová to our region is yet another proof," Volodymyr Trush, Head of the Ternopil Regional Military Administration, posted on Telegram.

The foreign delegation and the local authorities honored the memory of the fallen Czechoslovak legionnaires on the 105th anniversary of the Battle of Zboriv.

In addition, the issue of support for the military and citizens who lost their homes due to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine was discussed.

The Battle of Zboriv took place between the Russian and Austro-Hungarian armies during the World War I, July 1-2, 1917. On the side of the Russian Empire, the units of the Czechoslovak Legion, formed from captured Czechs and Slovaks, took part in this battle for the first time. The battle ended with the victory of the Russian troops, essentially the only great victory of the Russian Empire during the so-called June offensive. The victory near Zboriv also contributed to the elevation of Czech national self-awareness.
