The EU Anti-Corruption Initiative (EUACI) has procured and delivered 1,002 armour vests and 1,400 ballistic helmets to Ukraine, worth more than €1 million.
The protective gear will be essential to ensure the safety of anti-corruption institutions’ staff and other defenders at the front.
EUACI Head Allan Pagh Kristensen said the aid was part of the wider support the initiative has been able to mobilise since 24 February.
“From being a big anti-corruption programme, we made the transition to become an emergency aid programme just two days after the beginning of Russia’s full-scale war,” said Kristensen.“In total, during more than fourth months of full-scale war, the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative delivered various types of humanitarian aid (clothing, shelter equipment, large-scale generators for strategic infrastructure, etc.) and handed over 1,300 bullet-proof vests, 1,400 ballistic helmets, 400 walkie-talkies, 2,000 first-aid kits, three thermographic cameras and other protective equipment with a total value of about €4 million.”
