Nine Ukrainians have arrived in the Czech Republic for medical treatment. Seven were taken to hospitals in Prague after landing on a Czech Army plane at the city’s Kbely military airport on Tuesday.

A Czech Interior Ministry spokesperson said the patients were mainly displaced persons from Eastern Ukraine; a number require treatment for injuries sustained due to the conflict in the region.
