Necessary support for the Ukrainian Armed Forces

In order to strengthen Ukrainian society and the Armed Forces during the time of war, we encourage different businesses and companies that are willing and ready to donate first aid medical supplies, food with a long shelf life or other assistance to contact the Ministry of Defence.

The Ministry of Defence emphasizes that the individual equipment required for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which is retailed by specially licensed companies, cannot be purchased by private individuals, and the export of military or dual-use goods requires an export license (tel. +371 67016430).
