On March 27, the cabinet of ministers of Ukraine adopted a resolution equating bulletproof vests and helmets with humanitarian aid.
Now for their import, only a declaration is needed. They also simplified the import of plates for body armor, non-civilian portable radio stations, non-civilian UAVs and quadrocopters, non-civilian binoculars, optical tubes, and monoculars, non-civilian collimator and optical sights, as well as thermal imagers and night vision devices.
Only a letter of guarantee from the end user is required for their importation.
"No bureaucracy, only a declarative principle. At the customs crossing, we fill out a declaration and bring helmets and bulletproof vests," minister for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk.
Thus, humanitarian assistance to protect lives will be delivered faster and more efficiently, and Ukrainians will receive timely support.
