Since the beginning of the year, more than 600 cases of nonreceipt of humanitarian aid by the military have been identified.

This was reported by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, according to Ukrinform.

"Joint inspections of more than 5,000 facts of the movement of humanitarian aid to about 100 military units were carried out by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the State Customs Service during January-May 2023," the statement said.

It is noted that in 653 cases, the receipt of such humanitarian aid was not confirmed. In particular, these are plates for body armor, night vision devices, thermal imagers, drones, vehicles and other goods and equipment.

As a result, the State Customs Service of Ukraine drew up 115 reports on violations of customs rules related to goods imported as humanitarian aid. The agency has sent 159 reports to law enforcement agencies regarding illegal actions with signs of a crime under Articles 201-2, 358 and 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. In many cases, checks are still ongoing.

"These results were achieved due to the rapid exchange of information between the Ministry of Defense and the State Customs Service to confirm the receipt of humanitarian aid by military units, as well as to identify and stop customs offenses," the statement said.
