Also in April 2020, the Czech government allocated approximately 900,000 euros for emergency humanitarian aid to Ukraine to fight coronavirus. The program includes the supply of medical equipment of Czech companies and humanitarian projects of non-governmental organizations to help medical institutions.
In addition, the Czech Republic supplied medical stocks worth almost 115,000 euros to eastern Ukraine in cooperation with the local volunteer organization E+ Initiative.
