A Czech citizen has died in Ukraine, Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said on June 11, confirming media reports about the first casualty among Czech volunteers fighting in the country.
"I can confirm that a Czech citizen has died in the Donetsk region of Ukraine," Lipavsky told reporters. "The body should be transported to the Kharkiv region tomorrow." Czech journalist Lenka Klicperova, who broke the news of the death on Facebook, said the man, a volunteer soldier identified as Michal J, was killed on June 10. In May, the Foreign Ministry confirmed the death of a Czech volunteer who was shot dead and found in a roadside grave near the northern city of Makariv, close to Kyiv.

The 49-year-old truck driver had gone to the war-torn country to help drive people to safety soon after Russia invaded, his wife had said.
