Soldiers’ pay to increase by 10 percent at start of 2023

The salaries of Czech soldiers are due to increase by 10 percent from the start of next year, under a Ministry of Defence proposal that has just been submitted for comments.

The minister of the interior, Vít Rakušan, previously said that the pay rise would also concern fire and police officers. Soldiers, the fire service and the police got their last raise at the beginning of 2022.

There were just under 27,000 soldiers in the Czech Army at the start of this year.
