Czech Foreign Minister Summons Russian Ambassador Over Air Strikes on Ukraine

Prague, July 10, 2024, The Europe Today: The Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jan Lipavský, summoned the Russian ambassador to Prague, Aleksandr Zmeyevsky, in response to recent Russian air strikes on Ukrainian cities. These attacks resulted in the deaths of over 40 people, including four children, and injured nearly 200 others on Monday.

In the meeting, Minister Lipavský conveyed a strong message to the Russian diplomat, condemning the attacks. He stated, “Murderers who attacked children in hospital are the garbage of humanity,” and urged Ambassador Zmeyevsky to relay this message to Moscow.

The Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed that efforts were made to address the issue at the UN Security Council on Tuesday. However, these attempts were thwarted by Russia, which holds the chairmanship of the Security Council this month.

Minister Lipavský’s decisive action underscores the Czech Republic’s condemnation of the violence and its commitment to supporting Ukraine amidst ongoing hostilities. The Czech government continues to advocate for international dialogue and action to address the crisis.
