Last year, America supported Ukraine and handed over weapons to defend against the Russian attackers: Ukraine received confiscated weapons as part of the Guns 4 Ukraine project. The project was initiated by Miami city deputy Ken Russell.
This year, the Miami police repeated the initiative and handed over the weapons confiscated for the year to the twin city Irpin. Miami announced an additional initiative and invited residents to give their own weapons. For various types of firearms, the police offered from $50 to $200. In total, Miami collected 101 units of multiple weapons for Ukrainian Irpin.
On August 15, the weapons were already delivered to Ukraine and handed over to the Irpin police station.
"It is a great honour for all of us to help you. The highest duty of every police officer is to ensure the safety and freedom of all men, women, and all residents of every community. My heart is with you," said Miami police chief Manuel Morales.
Recall that on August 2, 2022, Irpin and Miami signed a document according to which they will cooperate in all areas of development and become twin cities.
