Фонд «Повернись живим»

The “Come Back Alive” Foundation for Competent Assistance to the Army together with Ukrnafta have provided the 82nd separate air assault brigade with vehicles and equipment worth UAH 33,399,605.9.

The military received 20 new Mitsubishi L200 four-wheel drive pickup trucks and additional sets of tires.

The Foundation and Ukrnafta also donated to the brigade:

  • 25 DJI Mavic 3E daytime drones; 
  • 20 DJI Mavic 3T drones with thermal imaging optics; 
  • 30 signal amplifier antennas for drones;
  • 100 sets of Motorola car radios;
  • 100 sets of Motorola portable radio stations;
  • 10 electronic warfare equipment;
  • 10 portable charging stations;
  • 8 optical sights;
  • 6 optical tubes for snipers.

“Together with our partners, we have provided the 82nd separate air assault brigade with the equipment they need to perform their tasks in the southern part of the frontline,” says Taras Chmut, director of the Come Back Alive Foundation. “The enemy moves mostly at night, so the military requested drones with thermal imaging optics. We also provided snipers with sights and optical tubes to hinder the enemy’s movement in the area. The brigade was provided with walkie-talkies, as communication is the nervous system of the army. Neither offense nor defense is possible without it. We also delivered 20 new pickup trucks. The vehicles are needed by both drone operators and snipers. The military will also use them to evacuate the wounded.”

As a reminder, in January-November 2023, the Come Back Alive Foundation allocated UAH 412,765,862.93 of donations to strengthen the Air Assault Brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

19 military units, including the 82nd Air Assault Brigade, received 600 7.62 mm machine guns and 531 ATGL-L3 hand-held grenade launchers, 52 new off-road pickup trucks, two Leleka-100 and one Shark unmanned aerial vehicle systems, 414 quadcopters, 945 radios, 273 charging stations, 1,263 pieces of demining equipment, 117 generators, 40 rangefinders, 48 Starlink satellite modems. Also, monitors, media players, projectors, medical equipment, repair tools, batteries, video cameras for drones, telescopic masts, and other components.
