Senior lawmakers from the four Central European countries, which together form the regional Visegrad Group (V4), gathered in the Czech capital to discuss Russia's war in Ukraine and future cooperation within their region, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

Representing Poland at the gathering were lower-house Speaker Szymon Hołownia and upper-house Speaker Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska.

The head of Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada parliament, Ruslan Stefanchuk, also arrived in Prague to join the meeting, the IAR news agency reported.

On Tuesday, the prime ministers of the V4 countries, including Poland's Donald Tusk, discussed the group's support for Ukraine at a summit in Prague.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, starting the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War II.

Thursday is day 736 of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
