Czech Crowds Welcome U.S. Military Convoy To Prague
Crowds of Czech citizens waved American flags to welcome a U.S. military convoy as it arrived on the outskirts of Prague on March 30. The 2nd Cavalry Regiment was en route to Germany from the Baltic countries, where the troops had conducted a six-month training mission with their NATO allies. The convoy covered more than 1,000 kilometers in recent days to show support to Eastern European allies worried by Russia’s actions in Ukraine. The convoy prompted a few small protests, mostly led by the Czech Communist Party, in contrast with much larger rallies held by supporters.
