Deputy minister: Ukraine major opportunity for Czech defence and security industry

A Czech deputy minister of defence, Tomáš Kopečný, says that the transformation of Ukraine represents a huge opportunity for expansion of the Czech defence and security industry, perhaps the biggest in the last three decades.

Mr. Kopečný, who is responsible for industrial cooperation at the Ministry of Defence, made the comment in an interview for the Czech News Agency published on Sunday.

He said the manner in which Czechs had supported Ukraine since its invasion by Russia had opened the door to Ukraine for Czechia.
