Army of Czech Republic [since 1993]
The damage caused by the recent storm in the High Tatras is likened by many people to our floods. Although the Slovak government did not ask for help, 37 AZD volunteers decided to help on their own.
If a unit comes under fire, it usually has wounded, often severely wounded. The first seconds are crucial for saving lives. But the unit must immediately solve another task - to repel the attack. So who will help the wounded? Mostly nobody at first. He has to help himself. Warning: The article uses original shots that are not suitable for children, pregnant women and people with weaker mental resilience.

Czech soldiers leaving for foreign missions are being prepared for the eventuality that they may be captured. In addition to the theoretical part, which contains a lot of important information, they have the opportunity to try such a situation on their own skin during practical training. Nevertheless, it is true that only reality will show to what extent they are able to handle such borderline situations.
There are more and more conflicts in the world and the need to inform the environment is growing. The need to move in war-torn areas is not an easy task for civilians. The Ministry of Defense therefore organizes a special training course for war correspondents, humanitarian workers and employees of regional authorities. What does such a course look like? I decided to find out for myself.
