Members of the small Czech community in the Ukrainian region of Volhynia say they are disappointed the Czech government has decided not to help them move to the Czech Republic. More than three dozen ethnic Czech families in Volhynia had said they feared for their futures given the political situation in Ukraine. Spokesperson Ema Snidevych told the Czech News Agency that officials from the Czech embassy in Kiev had not dedicated enough time to monitoring the situation of the Volhynia Czechs. Czech Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek said on Monday the officials had decided that the minority were not in danger and wished to move to the Czech Republic for economic reasons.
