The European Union Advisory Mission to Ukraine (EUAM) has delivered 10,800 NATO-standard individual first aid kits (IFAKs) to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine and the National Police of Ukraine.
All officers who have received IFAK will be better prepared to help themselves and others in the first moments after injury or trauma.
“These first aid kits will now head on to the East and South of Ukraine to support our special battalions on the frontline,” said Volodymyr Ilchyshyn, Deputy Head of the National Police in Lviv region. “EUAM has been our partner for many years already. We are grateful that they support us in such difficult times for our country.”
A further 2,700 IFAK for the State Bureau of Investigation and the Prosecutor General’s Office will be delivered in the coming days.
The support is provided in the framework of the PRAVO Police programme implemented by UNOPS in close cooperation with the EU Advisory Mission to Ukraine. Following the Russian Federation’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, over €700,000 were redirected in order to purchase almost 11,000 first aid kits for Ukraine’s law enforcement agencies.
