U.S. and Canada Provide Ukraine with Essential Demining Equipment

The United States and Canada have delivered critical demining equipment to Ukraine, as announced by U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Ms. Bridget Brink

This assistance comes in response to the extensive mining of over a third of Ukraine's territory due to Russia's full-scale invasion.

Ambassador Brink shared on her X (formerly Twitter) page that the equipment, valued at over 1 million U.S. dollars, will enable Ukraine to deploy additional demining teams, thereby accelerating the nation's recovery efforts.

The State Special Transport Service has confirmed the receipt of fourteen new Toyota Hilux vehicles, alongside drones, metal detectors, and other demining tools, intended for the engineering and sapper units' operations.

This contribution is part of ongoing support, as evidenced by the recent provision of vehicles, metal detectors, radios, drones, explosive suits, and demining toolkits to 106 engineering and sapper groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by the "Return to Life" fund. An additional 40 groups are slated to receive similar support soon, funded by donations from individuals and businesses committed to aiding Ukraine's restoration.
