The Czech Army has cancelled the 31st Bahna event, which was scheduled to take place on 20 June at Brdy Military Area.

The decision was announced in a release by Lt Col Vlastimila Cyprisová, who reported that the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and the national emergency declared by the Czech government were the reasons behind the cancellation.

Brigadier General Ladislav Jung, Ground Forces commander in the Army of the Czech Republic, said: ‘This event will not do without hundreds of members of ground forces [and] military equipment… who are carrying out tasks related to the protection of national borders of the Czech Republic, ensuring the distribution of vital material or contributing to securing smart quarantine.’

The first Open Day of the ACR Ground Forces, scheduled for 30 May in Prostějov, is also cancelled.
