On 3 February, two new off-road trucks with double cabins for the transportation of military units arrived in Ukraine.
They are part of a new batch of thirteen trucks delivered to the Support Forces Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) as part of the assistance measure worth €31 million adopted on 15 December 2021 by the EU under the European Peace Facility (EPF).
These off-road trucks will improve engineer platoons’ protection, resilience, and security during demining operations in the Joint Forces Area of Operations. During 2022, these engineer platoons have already received 58 ultra-compact metal detectors and 29 toolkits.
The European Union will also support the training of 50 explosive detection and demining dogs. The first nine dogs were already handed over to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, says the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
