Czechia has found sources abroad for hundreds of thousands of artillery ammunition that could be delivered to Ukraine in a matter of weeks, if it can secure funding with partners in the US, Germany, Sweden and other countries, Czech President Petr Pavel said at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

A two-year-old Czech boy with a rare genetic disorder has returned home after undergoing gene therapy in France. The child was transported by ambulance from Prague’s Václav Havel Airport to Motol Children’s Hospital where he will receive further medical care.

His parents previously said that the procedure in France was successful and little Martin was already showing signs of improvement. The life-saving treatment was made possible thanks to a public collection which raised over 150 million crowns for the child.
