Pavel said the Czech Republic intends to deliver as much ammunition to Ukraine as soon as possible to deter a possible Russian summer offensive.

"Our initiative is not the only one, Estonia and Great Britain are also developing a similar one, France has also spoken about this," he said.

He added that this issue was discussed at a meeting with the participation of the foreign ministers of the Baltic countries, France and Ukraine.
