The Phoenix Wings charitable organization sent another batch of uniforms, VARAN-ZSU [Varan-Armed Forces of Ukraine] to the soldiers of the 79th separate air-mobile brigade on Saturday, 25 July 2015. According to the coordinator of the charitable organization, this uniform is a unique Ukrainian design otherwise unprecedented worldwide.

The uniform will be tested for three months in field conditions and after that the Ministry of Defense will consider it as a possible option for an all-purpose uniform for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
