The European Union has donated communication equipment to the National Police of Ukraine (NPU) and the State Border Guard Service (SBGS) worth over €200,000.
This donation will enhance communication and coordination between the law enforcement agencies, and strengthen the resilience of Ukraine in the face of Russia’s ongoing military invasion.
“The support from international partners is extremely important to us, because there is often a lack of any technical communication capabilities in regions where active hostilities continue,” said Leonid Tymchenko, Head of the NPU’s Department of Information and Analytical Support. “This equipment will enable the use of encrypted communication channels. Thanks to the technical support received, we have provided three regions and several National Police units with high-quality stable communication.”
The donation comes as one of many delivered within the PRAVO Police project, which is currently refocused on providing emergency assistance to Ukraine’s law enforcement and rule of law agencies. The EU project is implemented by UNOPS in close coordination with the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) Ukraine.
