After landing, Zelenskyy went to Prague Castle, the residence of the Czech President, where he will hold talks with President Petr Pavel as well as the Prime Minister and speakers of the Czech Parliament.

This is the first visit of the president of Ukraine to the Czech Republic since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion and the first for Zelenskyy personally.

Quote: "The visit of the Ukrainian president is intended to be an expression of appreciation for the support that the Czech Republic has provided to Ukraine since the beginning of Russian aggression and to bring mutual assurance that this support will continue," the office of Czech President Petr Pavel said in a statement.

Details: The presidents of Ukraine and the Czech Republic are expected to coordinate their positions at a one-on-one meeting ahead of the NATO summit in Vilnius, where security guarantees for Ukraine will be discussed, among other things.
