Metinvest Donates Modern Equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine to defend Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk regions

Support for the Defence Forces of Ukraine does not stop for a minute - Metinvest, as part of Rinat Akhmetov's Steel Front defence initiative, continues to systematically supply modern gadgets to strengthen Ukrainian defenders on the front lines. 

This time, the 47th Separate Mechanised Brigade and the 109th Separate Territorial Defence Brigade received all the things needed. Now they are driving the enemy out of Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk regions.

- The guys always come to us with a fighting spirit, and we do our best to support and inspire them to the Victory. And while our defenders on the front lines are driving the enemy out of our land, we in the rear are trying to respond to their requests as quickly as possible and find everything our military need. It is not the first time we have done this, but it will not be the last, and we will support the Armed Forces of Ukraine until the Victory, - Oleksandr MYRONENKO, Chief Operations Officer of Metinvest, said.

The equipment received by the military includes charging stations, starlinks and Mavic drones with night vision cameras.  The soldiers say all this is essential for effective work on the front lines. In particular, thanks to drones, they will be able to detect the enemy faster, and these drones are especially necessary for night work.

- Today we have received DJI Mavic 3T drones. Their advantage is that they have a wider range of functionality and a longer flight range. With this drone, we can fly up to 7 kilometres away and, accordingly, conduct reconnaissance more effectively or see the enemy earlier. And its biggest advantage is that we can work with it even at night, - the soldier "Fire" explained.

The defenders are grateful for the support. They say that without such equipment, the victory would have been impossible.

- This is not the first time we have received support from Metinvest. And all the "birds" donated by the Company have already completed many combat missions. So we are very grateful to Metinvest for such comprehensive support. We are determined to win and we will definitely win! - the soldier of the Territorial Defence Brigade with the call sign"Sms" said.

Over the eighteen months of the full-scale war, Metinvest spent about UAH 4 billion to help the country and its citizens, including UAH 2 billion for the needs of the army as part of Rinat Akhmetov's Steel Front defence initiative. Since the first day of the russian invasion, the Company has become a reliable support for the country in extremely difficult times, strengthening the defence capability of the army, taking care of its employees and Ukrainian civilians, and supporting the economy.
