The new procedure for importing bulletproof vests, helmets and other material equipment for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was explained by the Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk. All mentioned above was equated with humanitarian aid.
Iryna Vereshchuk reminded that with the beginning of the war, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine received more and more appeals from volunteers who deliver modern ammunition, means of protection and other much-needed material resources from abroad for the needs of the Armed Forces. The current procedure for their import has significantly slowed down this process.
“Therefore, today the Government adopted amendments to the resolution “Some issues of passing humanitarian aid across the customs border of Ukraine under martial law”. We equated bulletproof vests and helmets to humanitarian aid. Now only a declaration will be needed to transport them across the border” – Iryna Vereshchuk said.
Amendments to the resolution greatly simplify the import of the following goods:
– plates for body armor;
– portable non-civil radio stations;
– unmanned aerial vehicles;
– non-civilian quadcopters;
– optical tubes;
– monoculars for non-civil purposes;
– collimator sights;
– optical sights;
– thermal imagers;
– night vision devices.
“Now only warranty letter of beneficial is required to transport these goods. We only import and help!” – summed up the Deputy Prime Minister.
