Czech President Petr Pavel said during a meeting with the country's armed forces commanders that the supply of weapons necessary for Ukraine to succeed is still slow and does not reach the required level. This was reported by the Czech news agency ČTK, citing the Czech president's speech.
"This is not the best starting point to survive a difficult winter and succeed against an enemy that has used all its time, learned its lessons, increased its military production, intensified its military production plans, and is now able to supply Ukraine with as much or more equipment and ammunition than we are able to supply from the West," the publication said.
The president pointed out that the Ukrainian counteroffensive is not developing as expected, and that Western support is not coming fast enough.
Pavel expressed his disappointment in the West's support and emphasized that the supply of necessary weapons still does not reach the required level.
The President identified a great risk in Russia's war against Ukraine and warned that this could lead to pressure for a deal to end the conflict.
Pavel called for the implementation of the agreement based on the real situation on the battlefield.
