Ukraine to get U.S. patrol boats next summer

Ukraine will receive Island-class patrol boats from the United States in the summer of 2019, Ukrainian Navy Commander Ihor Voronchenko has said.

He said this in an interview with Germany's international broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

"They should be in Ukraine in July. Crews are being trained. The procedure for additional equipment of these ships and the procedure for joint training at a base in Baltimore [in the United States] have been agreed. The last steps we have to take to ensure that the boats arrive in Ukraine as soon as possible have also been coordinated," Voronchenko said.
