The Financial Times previously reported that the amount needed to supply Ukraine with ammunition is US$1.5 billion.

Officials in Prague said they could not provide any details of the financing or on the source of the ammunition.

Pavel said that Czechia had found up to 800,000 NATO standard-calibre munitions, which Czechia could send to Ukraine in a few weeks if it received funding for them to be supplied.
