The Border Service of Ukraine‬ has received the first batch of non-lethal military equipment from the USA. This aid was handed over as part of the agreements between the authorities of the USA and Ukraine, 5 Kanal TV reported at 3pm Ktyiv time today.

Border guards received the essentials: bullet-proof vests, thermal cameras, binoculars, kneepads and warm clothes, as well as several unmanned aerial vehicles and heavy equipment that will be used for construction of the state border.

The US assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, Victoria Nuland, participated in the handover of the equipment. She said there would be several deliveries of this kind. Overall, it is planned to hand over aid to the Ukrainian border guards worth 26m dollars.

Viktor Nazarenko,first deputy head of the State Border Service of Ukraine said: “We are receiving a batch of personnel supply. Human life is the main thing. We are receiving bullet-proof vests of the necessary class and uniforms. You can see that we have already received 1,500 sets. We continue receiving other means of individual protection, such as helmets, kneepads and so on. The second batch we are going to receive is for the winter. We need to get ready.”
