Senate approves sending military police officers to Ukraine to investigate war crimes

On Thursday the Senate approved sending up to 15 Czech military police officers to Ukraine as part of a multinational team investigating war crimes in the country for the International Criminal Court (ICC). They could also be deployed in The Hague, the Netherlands, where the ICC is based.

The mission is still subject to the approval of the lower house, which should decide on the government's proposal next week at the earliest.
