Two Czech citizens have been killed while fighting in the ranks of pro-Russian forces in Ukraine, the website of a local Czech communist party organization in Frýdek-Místek reported quoting Russian sources. The reports says the men, whose names were given as Ivo Stejskal and Vojtěch Hlinka, were killed in combat on August 12 in the east of the country, and were buried on the spot. The Czech Foreign Ministry has said it has no knowledge of the Czech citizens’ deaths; the country’s intelligence services however believe around 30 Czechs have joined the ranks of pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine.
