Ukraine will receive 50 Airbus helicopters in 2022, said Interior Minister Denis Monastyrsky.
“Next year there are ambitious plans for quality equipment and the status of the largest aircraft fleet in Europe. Yes, we will get 50 modern helicopters made in France by Airbus Helicopters, ”he said.
According to him, all this equipment will ensure the implementation of two important projects – “Single Aeromedical Space” and “European Fire Safety Hub”.
Monastyrskyi added that a Situational Monitoring Center would be built, which would analyze satellite thermal imaging and help eliminate natural fires at an early stage.
The Minister of Internal Affairs explained that the “Single Aeromedical Space” will cover Ukraine with helicopter bases for air evacuation and transportation of donor biomaterials.
The European Fire Safety Hub will help prevent 90% of forest fires through the use of Antonov fire-fighting aircraft.
