Unite With Ukraine is pleased to announce another successful delivery of vital equipment to the frontlines in Ukraine. The delivery, valued at USD 2.1 million, was received by Ukraine’s territorial defense forces and state border guard services.

Equipment packed on pallets ready for delivery

The Command of the Territorial Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received:

  • 2200 MICH Ballistic Helmets
  • 1000 Plate Carriers
  • 2000 NIJ Level IV Ballistic Plates

The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine received: 

  • 1000 MICH Ballistic Helmets
  • 1000 Plate Carriers
  • 2000 NIJ Level IV Ballistic Plates

This delivery comes as Ukraine enters the fifth month of Russia’s full-scale  invasion and just a few days after the Unite with Ukraine campaign announced the creation of the Strategic Advisory Council (SAC). The SAC is comprised of retired military generals from Canada, the USA and The Netherlands, all of whom support Ukraine’s fight for freedom, against tyranny and Russian aggression. 

The SAC is chaired by Canadian General (Ret.) Rick Hillier, Chief of the Defense Staff and senior commander of forces in several theatres. General Hillier is joined by General (Ret.) Wesley K. Clark, US Army, Supreme Allied Commander of NATO Forces in Europe; General (ret.) David H. Petraeus, US Army, Commander of Coalition Forces in Iraq, Commander of US Central Command, Commander of Coalition Forces in Afghanistan, and former Director of the CIA; and General (Ret.) Dick Lodewijk Berlijn, Chief of Defence of the Netherlands.

Pallets of equipment ready for delivery

Speaking after the delivery, General Hillier, who recently returned from a fact-finding mission to Ukraine, said, "Unite With Ukraine's supply of essential equipment is saving lives of Ukraine’s civilian defenders. Without helmets and body armour, Ukrainian fighters cannot confront the Russian enemy. The SAC is advizing Unite With Ukraine on procurement matters and I ask all supporters to donate as generously as possible because doing so literally saves lives."
