Ukraine receives 27 SUVs from British farmers

British farmers “driving thousands of kilometers to donate their SUVs so that our country can win,” Maksym Kozytskyi, head of the Lviv Oblast Military Administration, said.

Ukraine receives 27 SUVs from British farmers

On 2 March, British farmers delivered 27 pickup trucks and SUVs filled with humanitarian aid to Lviv as part of the “Pickups for Peace” campaign supporting the Ukrainian army.

“Although the farmers of our nearest neighbors have organized a blockade of the Ukrainian-Polish border, pouring out grain that our people are harvesting under fire, risking their lives, and detaining trucks carrying vital aid to Ukrainian soldiers, other farmers are driving thousands of kilometers to donate their SUVs so that our country can win,” Maksym Kozytskyi, head of the Lviv Oblast Military Administration, wrote.

“Today, British farmer Mark Lerd and 45 of his friends brought 27 pickups to the Lviv region. The vehicles are filled with tools, shovels, spare tires, medicines, clothing, generators, tents, sleeping bags, and other humanitarian aid for our defenders,” Maksym said.

According to him, these 27 off-road vehicles were distributed, based on requests from military units to the Lviv Oblast Military Administration, to the 24th King Daniel Mechanized Brigade, the 125th Territorial Defense Brigade, the 150th Training Center of the Territorial Defense Forces Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the “Omega” special unit, and to reinforce mobile air defense groups in the Lviv Oblast.

In total, within the framework of the “Pickups for Peace” campaign, British farmers have already delivered over 300 vehicles to the front lines.

The “Pickups for Peace” charitable campaign, organized by British farmers, aims to support Ukrainian defenders by donating vehicles mostly from their own farms to the Ukrainian military.
