Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote about this on Twitter.
"The aviation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs received the fifth helicopter out of 28 planned for this year under a contract with Airbus Helicopters. This is the fourth H225 helicopter for the National Guard of Ukraine, which will begin to perform tasks within the framework of a unified aviation security system," the minister said.
According to Avakov, Ukrainian pilots have undergone theoretical and practical training abroad. French helicopters perform civil protection tasks on the territory of Ukraine. In particular, they are used for the operational movement of National Guard personnel over long distances, the performance of certain tasks, the evacuation of the sick and wounded, and search and rescue operations.
The minister also noted that the contract with Airbus Helicopters for the supply of 55 helicopters was being successfully implemented. By the end of 2021 Ukraine will receive a total of 28 helicopters as part of the formation and development of the Aviation Security System of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
