In June, the State Special Transport Service received a batch of Toyota Land Cruiser 300 GXR vehicles with the support of the German government.

The German company Trasco Bremen, one of the world’s leading suppliers of armored vehicles, supplied the armored off-road vehicles. The SUVs are to ensure the safety of Ukrainian soldiers.

Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service also received a batch of Mercedes Arocs trucks from Germany.

41 vehicles were transferred to combat border guard units that are part of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

Implementation of this international technical assistance project was made possible thanks to the German federal government.

Trucks of this type will become the basis of logistics on the front lines of the Russian-Ukrainian war.
