The Slovaks disagreed with their government's position on the Czech initiative and decided to independently raise money for ammunition for Ukraine. In just a few days, almost 700,000 euros were collected.

This was reported by Euractiv.

The Slovak government did not support the Czech initiative, so the Slovaks took matters into their own hands.

“We cannot accept the fact that our government refuses to aid our neighbour. Let us prove that Slovakia is not cowardly and stands on the right side of history with a civic fundraising for ammunition. Let’s help Ukraine despite our pro-Russian government,” the organisers wrote on the fundraising’s official website, launched on Tuesday.

More than 20 countries participated in the Czech initiative to purchase ammunition for Ukraine, but the Slovak government did not participate in the campaign, stating that the conflict 'has no military solution' and sending weapons to Ukraine 'will only prolong the war'."
