117 million for Ukraine’s Armed Forces: UWC leadership meets with General Tantsyura

Paul Grod, the President of the Ukrainian World Congress, and Andrew Potichnyj, Director of the Unite With Ukraine initiative, met with General Ihor Tansyura, the Commander of the Territorial Defense Forces. 

During the meeting, the delegation announced another assistance package for the Territorial Defense Forces needs worth UAH 117 million (over USD 3 million). These include, in particular, armored vehicles for the evacuation and safe movement of personnel in the combat zone, FPV drones, the latest Strata 22 weapon simulators for training fighters, as well as the repair and restoration of four-wheel drive GAZ-66 trucks.

“Today, the UWC, within the Unite with Ukraine initiative, has the great honor to announce the provision of another package of military aid for the strengthening of the Armed Forces’ Territorial Defense in the amount of UAH 117 million,” Paul Grod said.

The aid continues the Unite With Ukraine initiative to purchase the UK Spartan armored vehicles.

“Worldwide Ukrainians stand side by side with the defenders of Ukraine not only with words but also with actions. Our cooperation with Major General Ihor Tansyura and his team is one of the most important areas of activity of the UWC and remains a priority. Funds collected from 65+ countries clearly indicate that the diaspora does not succumb to Russian propaganda and is ready to continue supporting the defenders of Ukraine,” Paul Grod added.

The Ukrainian World Congress has been a reliable and stable partner of the Territorial Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion. Their extraordinary support and cooperation was and remains an essential component of the success of our forces on the battlefield, Major General Ihor Tansyura said.

“This aid package is another example of the high level of our joint work with the UWC,” the Commander of the Territorial Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine added.

The meeting took place within the framework of the UWC delegation’s visit to Ukraine. The day before, the leaders of the UWC met with Kyrylo Budanov, the head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense, Oleksii Reznikov, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, and others.
