Morning News: Thursday, August 11, 2022

If your day doesn’t start until you’re up to speed on the latest headlines, then let us introduce you to our new morning fix. 


  • Up to 1,200 Czech troops may be deployed at the NATO eastern flank in the next two years, under the plan of foreign army missions until 2024 approved by the Senate today. The Chamber of Deputies is yet to give the go-ahead to the missions.


  • The Czech Senate approved yesterday the bill to restrict the impact of selected plastic products on the environment, banning single-use plastic cutlery, plates and drinking straws in harmony with EU regulations. The bill was supported by 49 of the 69 senators present. Now, President Milos Zeman is to assess it and sign it into law.


  • The President of the Senate Milos Vystrcil handed the Silver Medal to the outgoing Ukrainian ambassador to the Czech Republic Yevhen Perebyinis. Vystrcil said Perebyinis was a man who had rendered a tremendous work for Ukraine and, thereby, also for the Czech Republic.


  • Czech diplomacy fully supports a possible establishment of a Belarusian office in Prague, which should be open to all democratically thinking Belarusians in Czechia. Opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya said she counted on the opening of the Belarusian exile government representation in Estonia, in Prague and Brussels.


  • Czechia currently ranks as the country with the least affordable housing in Europe, according to a new study published by Deloitte. Czechs with an average salary now have to work 13.3 years to buy a medium-size apartment of 70 square metres if having no other expenses.
