The Czech Republic is ready to provide treatment to more injured people from the east of Ukraine, Interior Minister Milan Chovanec said after a meeting of the country’s security council on Monday. Mr Chovanec said his ministry was working on the extension of its Medevac programme of evacuating Ukrainian citizens in need of medical treatment, following an offer made by the Czech foreign minister, Lubomír Zaorálek, during a visit to Ukraine last week. So far, 39 injured people from Ukraine have received treatment in Czech hospitals since the start of the crisis in that country at the start of the year.
