A Czech volunteer fighting on the Ukrainian side against the Russian army was killed over the weekend. His death was first reported on the X social network and subsequently confirmed by the Czech Ministry of Defence.

Year-on-year consumer price growth in Czechia slowed to 2.3 percent in January, down from 6.9 percent in December, according to figures released by the Czech Statistics Office on Thursday.

While the figure is the lowest since March 2021, it is still above the Czech National Bank’s two-percent inflation target.


The European Commission has downgraded its Czech growth forecast for 2024, predicting that GDP will grow by 1.1 percent instead of the previously expected 1.4 percent.

According to the EC prediction, growth should be supported by the high saving rate of households over the past three years, the projected easing of inflation and rising real wages, as well as by further relaxation of financing conditions.
