Readying site for munitions from Vrbětice to cost state CZK 20 million, says minister

It will cost the state up to CZK 20 million to put a munitions depot at the village of Květná into operation, the minister of defence, Martin Stropnický, said on Tuesday after visiting the site, which is north of Brno. The transfer to Květná of munitions from a store in Vrbětice, eastern Moravia, where two buildings have blown up in recent months, could begin in January. There could be a permanent depot in Květná for such situations in future, the minister said.
