The Croatian prime minister has already met with Shmyhal.

"Croatia is a state that, despite the difficult path of post-war reconstruction, has successfully fully integrated into the EU. The experience in European integration, post-war reconstruction, veteran policy, demining is extremely valuable for us. And Croatia is ready to support us in these spheres. In particular, at the level of the European Commission it prepares initiatives on assistance to Ukraine in humanitarian demining", - the Ukrainian Prime Minister noted.
