The newly elected president of the Czech Republic, Petr Pavel, and Slovakia's President Zuzana Caputova are planning to visit Ukraine.

That's according to the pravda.sk news site.

The report states that Pavel will call Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on January 29 and propose that he visit Ukraine together with Caputova.

The Slovak leader welcomed this idea.

The exact date for the visit has not yet been announced.

Retired NATO general Petr Pavel was elected as the new president of the Czech Republic on January 28.

He previously stated that the Czech Republic would remain pro-Western, maintain its strategic relations with the EU and NATO, and be on the side of Ukraine. Pavel also said the war in Ukraine is a war that affects the Czech Republic as well, because it is a war for the future of international relations, for the future of a safe Europe.
