On May 31, the Czech Senate adopted a resolution on Ukraine's early accession to the North Atlantic Alliance. Among other things, it states that our country demonstrates its determination and readiness to defend Euro-Atlantic values.
This was announced by the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk on his Facebook page. He called the resolution important for Ukraine.
At the same time, Stefanchuk emphasized that our country's victory in the full-scale war launched by Russia is in the interests of the security of the Czech Republic itself. He added that Prague supports training, provision of weapons, and other military equipment to the Ukrainian army to fight the Russian occupation forces. The Czech Republic, in coordination with its partners, has been helping Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion.
In the resolution, the Czech Senate also emphasized that the NATO summit in Vilnius in July 2023 should "reaffirm a strong political commitment to Ukraine" as Ukraine's accession to the bloc will significantly strengthen its military potential and preserve the international order based on the rules and norms of the United Nations.
In conclusion, the speaker of the Ukrainian parliament thanked his Czech friends for their strong support of Ukraine.
