Friday, February 26, the National Guard of Ukraine received the consignment of specialized armored vehicles Novator manufactured by Ukrainian Armor under the state contract. The defense equipment is produced in line with the customer’s technical specifications within the contract timeframe.

The handover procedure was held at the company’s technical base in Novi Petrivsti with Vladislav Belbas, Ukrainian Armor Director-General, directly involved.

“We regard every handover to Ukrainian defense agencies to be a special event. The demand for our vehicles evidences their reliability, operability, and compliance with the requirements that the National Guard and the Armed Forces of Ukraine impose upon wheeled armored vehicles. We are proud that the defense equipment by Ukrainian Armor saves lives of our country’s defenders,” – noted Mr. Belbas.
