Czech NGOs Line Up For and Against Genocidalists

A Czech organization, Caritas, that had been forced to close their clinic in Gaza, has now reopened a temporary facility in the northern section. Caritas is supporting an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, even though the Czech government vetoed such an action. A representative of the Catholic-supported NGO, Lenka Pipkova, told Radio Prague: “There are about 1.9 million people who have been displaced, many of them repeatedly. There is nowhere to go, no safe place. There are not even basic things like water or food, there is a really high risk of famine.”

Radio Prague also reported on a competing Czech NGO, established by investor and active military reservist Jan Veverka, is raising funds to purchase 10,000 camera drones for Ukraine’s military. The NGO chose a name—Skupina D—which might confuse Czechs, as it is the name of the World War II special unit set up by Prague’s exile government to assassinate Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich.

It is unlikely that Kiev plans on using any such drones to target any Nazis, however, two buildings in Lviv, Ukraine, connected with Nazi collaborators Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevich, were hit last week.
